The School Library Association is excited to launch a CPD Library service - exclusive to UK based SLA members for a small addition to the usual membership fee.
The CPD Library allows members to borrow four titles a year per membership. The profit from this will go back into this service, allowing us to buy more titles to add to the collection, and a profit sharing arrangement (similar to PLR) with the authors will be set up. The initial set up of this service has been funded through use of the SLA reserves and funding from the Library Services Trust.
The titles range from school librarianship titles, to behaviour management; from educational psychology to information literacy. Watch the list grow here: CPD Library
Members who sign up for this additional service will be added to our Library Management System (supplied by Softlink) so any loans can be managed. Contact SLA HQ for information on how to join our CPD Library (an annual charge of £15 per user applies).
Unfortunately, as we send books out via the post, this service is currently available to UK schools only. We will keep in mind the provision of e-books for the future.
#LibraryStaffLoveLearning - The CPD Library now includes 5 copies of March's #LibraryStaffLoveLearning book 'Digital Literacy Unpacked'.
