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

    Library Camps are a user-generated unconference for people who work in, use, study or are just interested in libraries. There is no set agenda – instead attendees are invited to ‘pitch’ the sessions they want to be a part of.
