Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Primary and Secondary

An increasing number of young people simply do not enjoy reading traditional print. Alternative formats open a door to a rich, vital and energising world that most of us take for granted. They are also, increasingly, a new and exciting way to bring story to a generation of digital natives – a tool librarians can use to create readers. This guideline is intended to introduce the librarian in both primary and secondary schools to some of those alternative formats, where they can be sourced and how to use them effectively. Some case studies complete this title and show how librarians have used alternative formats in innovative ways in their own schools.
