Information Today, Inc. Acquires Online Magazine

October 18, 2001, Medford, NJ — Information Today, Inc. (ITI) announced today that it has acquired Online magazine from Online, Inc. This acquisition enhances ITI’s position as the leading publisher in the information industry. 

Online magazine, now in its 25th year, is widely recognized as a leading magazine for the electronic information community. It publishes practical articles, reviews, news, and informed commentary for working information professionals, librarians, and other professionals who gather, manage, and use electronic information in corporate, academic, and government settings. 

Information Today, Inc. is a publisher and conference organizer in the library and information industry. While the company is widely known as the publisher of leading information industry titles such as Information Today, Searcher, and Computers in Libraries, among others, this acquisition brings ITI’s offerings to new heights. Tom Hogan, Sr., president of Information Today, Inc., said, "Online has been our worthy competition for over two decades, and we have a profound respect for its quality and comprehensiveness. It truly is the journal of record for our field. Jeff Pemberton and the many other publishing professionals at Online, Inc. should be commended for their pioneering efforts over the years and for their dedication to the online community. Having Online under the same roof as Information Today, Searcher, and our other publications is a dream come true for us."

Jeff Pemberton, Chairman of Online, Inc., said “We closed the sale of Online to Information Today with a great sense of accomplishment and confidence that the magazine is in good hands. Changing times require new business strategies to take advantage of opportunities, but our roots are deep, and electronic content and information professionals will continue to be a major part of our mission and our audience.”

Marydee Ojala, the editor of Online magazine, has agreed to remain as editor and will join the ITI editorial team under Dick Kaser, V.P. of Content. Ms. Ojala will also be working as a member of the conference programming team for ITI’s numerous industry events.
