Who Should Advertise in Information Standards Quarterly

  • ISQ's Target Market?
    Information Standards Quarterly
    (ISQ), communicates standards-based technology and best practices in library, publishing, and information technology, particularly where these three areas overlap. ISQ reports on the progress of active developments and also on implementations, case studies, and best practices that show potentially replicable efforts.
  • ISQ's Unique Selling Proposition?
    Each issue explores specific and timely topics relevant to the library and information service communities. Incorporating both national and international perspectives, ISQ is unlike any other magazine in circulation.
  • Hit Your Mark
    With a quarterly distribution of over 900 paid and member subscribers, you can be sure you are reaching the people who need to see you.
