The Arrowhead Library System subscribes to a number of periodicals that may be of interest to library staff. We routinely route new issues to staff at ALS and in member libraries who have expressed an interest. Generally, we maintain back issues for one year. As always, if you’re at ALS for a meeting or other event, please feel to browse the periodicals housed in our Professional Collection. The titles that ALS receives, along with a brief description, are listed below:
