ALA | Library Mosaics Ceases Publication

ALA | Library Mosaics Ceases Publication: "Library Mosaics Ceases Publication"

After 16 years of publication, Library Mosaics, the national magazine for library support staff, will cease effective with its November/December issue. Publisher Raymond Roney wrote in a notice to readers that the decision was “based mainly on financial grounds” and reached only “after much thought and careful deliberation.” He added, “We have struggled against the bottom line as long as we could because we believed in the magazine’s value to support staff around the world.”

The magazine, based in Culver City, California, has collaborated with the Council on Library/Media Technicians to offer annual Support Staff of the Year and Supporter of Support Staff of the Year awards.
