Summary

The professional library periodicals in Colorado were analyzed in terms of the type of information disseminated, user needs and the function of the various publications. The three data collection techniques used were: (1) content analysis, to answer general questions about the scope, type of article, news coverage, and special features of the publication; (2) interviews with Colorado library publications editors, to obtain information about editorial policy, content, financing, circulation policy, and function of the publications and (3) user questionnaire, to determine the readers and non-readers of the various library publications. The questionnaire used is appended. This study revealed the strength of the Colorado library publications to be their news coverage. All publications cover local and state news in detail. The three specific areas of weakness listed by the librarians surveyed are: (1) the absence of a list of job vacancies in the Rocky Mountain region, (2) the sparsity of research articles and (3) the rare mention of continuing education opportunities. Several suggestions are offered for the future direction of library publications in Colorado. (NH)
