Cover Page
As a tribute to Atlanta hosting the 2016 ALA Midwinter Meeting, this month’s cover depicts its municipal airport in 1948. Today’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is on the same site, although the terminal has been relocated several times.

The photo is part of Georgia State University’s Lane Brothers Commercial Photographers collection. Former photojournalists, the Lane brothers created a rich visual record of Atlanta’s mid-20th century economic growth, social change, and political activity. Other photographic, archival, and manuscript collections at Georgia State University Library’s Special Collections and Archives document the Southeast’s society and culture from the 20th century to the present.
