“All things must change to something new…” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Change is on the horizon.
After nearly 70 years of publishing under the title of “Information Bulletin,” the Library’s magazine is getting a new look and feel—and a new name. All will be revealed when the publication debuts in 2012.
Last spring we surveyed our readers for their likes and dislikes about the Library of Congress Information Bulletin and their suggestions for improvement. And we conducted focus groups made up of people not familiar with the publication. We asked them what they would like to see in a magazine produced by the nation’s library.
Our readers have spoken, and we have listened.
They told us that to engage today’s readers—who are inundated with information—the publication must:
- Reach out and grab readers with eye-catching graphics
- Engage readers with interesting stories that only the world’s largest library can tell
- Take readers behind the scenes to see the Library’s magnificent spaces, meet its staff members and browse its unparalleled collections.
And so we are in the process of developing a new magazine that will do just that.
See you in 2012!
