About the Journal

Background on OLAQ

From 1952 - 1994, the Oregon Library Association's main publication was the Oregon Library News (0030-4735) which was published on a monthly basis. In 1995, this publication split into the OLA Hotline (1097-8119) and the OLA Quarterly (1093-7374). The OLA Quarterly (OLAQ) is the Association's journal and is published four times a year. As of the Winter 2009 issue, the OLAQ is only available in an online format, accessible via the OLA Web site. It is no longer printed and mailed. In 2014, Pacific University Library began hosting OLAQ on the Bepress Digital Commons platform.  In 2020, Oregon State University Libraries & Press migrated the content from Pacific to OSU to be hosted on Open Journal Systems (OJS).

The OLA Quarterly is indexed by Library Literature & Information Science and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts. Full text of the OLAQ is also available through HW Wilson's Library Literature and Information Science Full Text and EBSCO Publishing's Library, Information Science and Technology Abstracts (LISTA) with Full Text.
