There is much talk and some action regarding MLEs (Modern Learning Environments) and MLLEs (Modern Library Learning Environments), especially in the Canterbury region and in pockets around the country. What does this mean to us and how will it affect us? That is a big question. Whether it is around the corner for you or on a distant horizon, school librarians need to be aware of changing thinking in schools and be prepared with a way forward. Having an idea of how your library fits in the scheme of things before the need arises is the best way forward.
We are now calling for contributions to our first issue of Collected for the year with the theme “MLE, MLLE; What, Who and How” and will be looking at the big picture. If you have knowledge in this area we hope you will share your experience with our readers.
And in every issue we like to include reviews of books suitable for students. Please consider sending in a review for this issue.
Deadline is Wednesday 14 May and we plan to print mid-June.
