ARL Communication Channels

ARL distributes digital content through various channels. You can control the news you receive from ARL through:

Email E-mail news subscriptions from ARL

RSS RSS feeds from the ARL website

Twitter Twitter stream from @ARLnews

Facebook Facebook posts on ARL's page

There is duplication across these channels of communication, but this can be adjusted to meet your need for currency and detail. See below for a summary of ARL news subscription options.

Our Recommendation for ARL Library Directors

Most ARL library directors want to receive the minimal amount of e-mail while still remaining up to date. If this is your wish, we recommend that you subscribe only to the ARL Weekly Update. The Weekly Update includes links to all new press releases and issues of E-News and Research Library Issues.
