The newsletter is strongly focused on OCLC products and services as well as how these products and services relate to the future of the profession.[10. OCLC. (2016). Issues. <em>NextSpace</em>. Retrieved from <a title="NextSpace: the OCLC Newsletter" href="http://www.oclc.org/publications/nextspace/issues.en.html" target="_blank">http://www.oclc.org/publications/nextspace/issues.en.html</a>] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> No information available. <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> There is little potential for LIS authors as this newsletter is published in house. However it is a good example of what an in house publication can be. It can serve as a model for an organization's in house newsletter that is distributed to a wider audience, especially in the way that OCLC markets itself, but also in how they are relating their products and services to the industry at large. In general this publication could serve more as an example, than a possible publication venue (unless one worked directly for OCLC). &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> No circulation statistics provided, but the publication is available online.[11.
