A New Chapter for NYLA's Communications
Since 1952 the NYLA Bulletin has been arriving in your mailbox 4 times a year. As librarians are well aware, the times and technology are ever-changing. The Bulletin is no exception, so with your overwhelming response to turn digital, we welcome you to the next chapter of the Bulletin. Six issues per year will continue to arrive electronically to your inbox. Each issue will align with a particular theme, technology being the first.
So being the very first issue, as always, the e-Bulletin is a work in progress. Comments or suggestions concerning the content or layout can be addressed by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. As the readers, your input is critical!
As you browse the articles in the e-Bulletin be sure to click "Current Issue" to return to this main page. The "Home" link above will take you to the NYLA homepage.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the new format, and are very excited for you to join us in our latest endeavor.
