Columns keep public librarians up-to-date on professional news, books, websites, and updates from the field, and can include the perspectives LIS students worldwide. According to column editor Nancy Dewald, the "Future Voices in Public Services" column provides a forum for students in graduate LIS programs "to discuss key issues they see in academic library public services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to tell us of research that is going on in library schools"[8.

All articles are peer reviewed with the exception of special themed issues, where articles are peer-reviewed at the discretion of the editor. Aside from the scholarly research articles, LIS students could contribute to columns specifically seeking the viewpoint of LIS students, or provide updates to public service librarians on the latest professional books, websites, and new themes in the field. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> Editors are comprised of librarians from U.S. and Canadian colleges,[15.

However, keep in mind that the publication is also read by students who might not have as much LIS knowledge, yet. Recent articles focus on the LIS graduate experience, particularly in an online environment; embedded librarians; WorldCat literacy instruction; emerging social media technologies and their uses in the library; and popular collections in public universities.[19.
