Historical Sketch

CEBAF/Jefferson Lab produced two newsletters: CEBAF News and On Target, with the latter being the successor to the former. In 1996, CEBAF News was renamed to On Target, a name suggested by Elizabeth Sarrett. Staff member Debbie Magaldi was responsible for getting On Target developed and printed. These newsletters highlighted advancements, discoveries and happenings within the Lab and Department of Energy that affected Jefferson Lab. The newsletters also updated users and staff of the Lab of future events and changes.

The January/February 2006 edition was the final print; after that date On Target was migrated from a print newsletter to digital with digital distribution until December 2014. There is presently a 'weekly brief' that is transmitted to all members of the Jefferson Lab community (including users) produced by Kandice Carter. For issues that are available digitally beginning in February 2000, please visit:
