Introduction to the SLA in Swedish

Skolbiblioteksföreningen (The School Library Association [SLA]) som har sitt högkvarter i Storbritannien har många medlemmar i Europa och andra delar av världen. Vem som helst som är intresserad i utvecklingen av skolbibliotek är välkommen att bli medlem. Allt vårt material är skrivet på engelska.

Vi ger råd till våra medlemmar om tränings kurser och publikationer. Dessa är publicerade i vår periodiska tidskrift “The School Librarian”.Vi har lokala och regionala brancher i England och Wales och nationella brancher i Skottland, Norra Irland och den Irländska Republiken. Vi arbetar för utveckling av skolbibliotek och för skolbibliotekariers vägnar. Vi skapade “SLA School Librarian of the Year Award” år 2004 för att gynna den goda praktiken som existerar i skolbiblioteken mera känd. Vi stöder skolbiblioteken genom att fira “International School Libraries’ Day” den första måndagen i oktober.

Vårt “Mission Statement”

  • Vi tycker att alla elever är berättigade till ett effektivt och välsorterat skokbibliotek. SLA stöder alla som arbeter i skolbiblioteken och ser till att alla har tillgång till böcker och undervisning av hög kvalite.

Vi svarar gärna på förfråginger om skolbibliotek i UK.

Great School Libraries campaign

GSL Logo

School libraries aren't statutory, and in the UK no one knows how many there are, or if they are staffed or funded. The Great School Libraries campaign is a three-year campaign which aims to change this – collecting data about school libraries as well as working towards securing school library funding; producing a national framework for school libraries and recognition of school libraries within Ofsted. 

It is about ensuring that all children receive the benefits a school library can provide. 

For more information about the campaign, or to sign up as a supporter, visit: http://greatschoollibraries.edublogs.org/
