There are numerous types of contributions an LIS student can make to <em>The Call Number</em>. Here are a few: A description of an event hosted by LISSTEN or a page with photos. A description of the day's events during Banned Books Week activities, including list of participants who met at the CSUF central quad. Past articles have included stories about library tours; Professional Associations Day; networking advice; interviews with faculty, librarians and students; REFORMA's Annual Career Fair; the student commencement address; LISSTEN's Resume and Interview program; and different types of librarianship.[16. LISSTEN. (2016). <em>The Call Number.</em> Retrieved from <a title="The Call Number" href="http://www.ellerman.org/vlasta/SLIS/LISSTEN/call_number/call_number_content.html">http://www.ellerman.org/vlasta/SLIS/LISSTEN/call_number/call_number_content.html</a>] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation</strong>: <em>The Call Number'</em>€™s circulation consists mainly of the students of School of Information (iSchool) at San José State University (SJSU). All iSchool students receive <em>The Call Number</em>, LISSTEN's newsletter. The faculty and administrators also read the newsletter.[17. LISSTEN. (2016). <em>The Call Number.</em> Retrieved from <a title="The Call Number" href="http://www.ellerman.org/vlasta/SLIS/LISSTEN/call_number/call_number_content.html">http://www.ellerman.org/vlasta/SLIS/LISSTEN/call_number/call_number_content.html</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: San José State University is located in San José, California, yet all of its students complete the program online. Per the SJSU SLIS Annual Review 2011, students attend online from 45 states and 17 countries, suggesting a large, international community. SJSU has the "only ALA-accredited program in library and information science in the California State University system of 23 universities; the largest in the world." Given the online, international nature of the program, references to San José, the campus or jargon should be limited. Cultural and bureaucratic references specific to California require brief explanation. However, SJSU SLIS jargon can be used.[18. San José State University. (2016). Innovate Magazine 2012. <em>SJSU School of Information</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Innovate Magazine 2012" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about-slis/publications/innovate-magazine-2012">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about-slis/publications/innovate-magazine-2012</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: The student population reflects the field of LIS professionals, with the majority being white and female. Efforts by the leadership of the school and the emphasis on technology as part of the program has greatly reduced that majority and increased the diversity of the student population. Many SLIS students are currently employed in a variety of library settings and bring with them varied experiences. These include: academic libraries, museum archives, K-12 schools, public libraries, special libraries, corporate libraries, law libraries, medical libraries, government libraries and homeland security. SLIS'€™s multicultural, multiethnic, and multilingual student body comes from a variety of backgrounds.[19. San José State University. (2016). Innovate Magazine 2012. <em>SJSU School of Information</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Innovate Magazine 2012" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about-slis/publications/innovate-magazine-2012">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about-slis/publications/innovate-magazine-2012</a>] The common attitude derives from the perspective of being a student. Students want opportunities to network with professionals in professional settings. LISSTEN's many activities accomplish this goal. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: iSchool students have a command of LIS subject matter and jargon. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Although some of the readers of <em>The Call Number</em> are faculty, their purpose in reading this newsletter is to understand the point of view of students. Therefore, it is advisable to focus solely on the audience: School of Information students at SJSU. iSchool students author and edit the entire publication. There are faculty and professional interviews but the intention is to allow faculty to relate to student interests. <strong>Last updated</strong>: May 14, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
