*These issues have been scanned and added to the Web site.
**Note, some library catalogs have: Began with v. 2, no. 3 (Jan. 1980). This is due to a title change. Here is the title history:
Newspaper Librarians (Issue No. 1, Feb. 1978 and Issue No. 2, May 1978)
Short Takes Bulletin of the Newspaper Division of Special Libraries Association (Vol. 1, No. 1 Summer 1978 to Vol. 2, No. 2 Fall 1979) (Issued quarterly under this title)
News Library News Bulletin of the Newspaper Division of Special Libraries Association (Vol.2, No. 3 Winter 1980 -vol. 13, No. 2 Winter 1991) (Issued quarterly under this title)
News Library News (Vol. 13, No. 3, Spring 1991 to Vol. 32, No. 2 Spring 2010) (Issued quarterly under this title.)
In 2003, the News Division stopped distributing a printed version of News Library News, creating a PDF file for future issues. The last complete issue was published with Vol. 32, No. 2 Spring 201o. After that, some postings using NLN column headings were made to a blog in 2010 and 2011.
Ginny Hauswald posted to NewsLib that the News Division has 200 members as of April 3. She also noted that the News Division has been a proud member of SLA since 1924, citing an article by Lany McDonald in a 1991 News Library News article. You can read Lany Walden McDonald’s article, “What in the World is a Kwapil?” here or the entire Fall 1991 issue here, thanks to Charlie Campo!

Tim Rozgonyi, Research Director at the Tampa Bay Times, posted to NewsLib these historical photos from a conference held at the Times many years ago:
I recognize a few of the librarians in these pictures. Perhaps this was a gathering of the Florida News Libraries Association?
He also included a cartoon composed many years ago by a former staff artist. It’s a portrait of the St. Petersburg Times Library:
