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.

    Inspired by the recent CILIP report of the same name, this training day will explore the answers to key questions:
    - Does your library service meet school priorities?
    - Is it responsive to user needs?
    - Are all your users aware of the services you offer?
    - How can you ensure your service provides value for money and
    supports school objectives?
