School Libraries Group

We offer help and support to members and hold a conference every two years which provides a forum for discussion and debate on current issues in school librarianship. We hold regional training courses on a wide range of topics concerned with school librarianship and campaign in support of school libraries, school librarians and Schools Library Services (SLSs). We publish the journal School Libraries in View (SLiV), circulate a monthly e-newsletter to members and produce publications such as CILIP Guidelines for Secondary School Libraries.

Training/Events

    To look toward the future of school libraries by encouraging all involved to share good practice on the questions of today: literacy initiatives vs. reading for pleasure; information skills for the net savvy generation; legal and responsible use of e-resources;, monitoring and reviewing our own impact in school; and much more - all with a view to arming ourselves for the challenges ahead.

    Librarians in attendance will also have the opportunity to meet local and national authors as well as library resources providers at our exhibition space.

  • SLG Regional Events 2015: East London

    Friday, 15 May 2015 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

    SLG regional event in East London..  

    These regional events will provide a good mixture of training, current awareness and networking at a very low price. 

    The programme will give librarians opportunities to contribute to the profession (thus furthering their own chartership work, for example) by giving a presentation on an aspect of their work, or helping in some other way to run an event.
