Resources for school library teams
SLANZA and other institutions provide a range of resources to assist school library teams in various ways.
SLANZA Collected magazine
With feature articles and regular columns. We welcome contributions from SLANZA members. Please contact our Editor for information about upcoming issues. You can find our Guidelines for submissions in the sidebar.
SLANZA Reading website
We have developed this website to gather lists of books by theme and by reading level to assist school librarians and teachers to quickly find thematic lists. The titles are collected from various listserv and volunteers put together the lists and add them to the website.
List of publishers permissions to use book covers
SLANZA has received permission from many publishers, on behalf of its members, to allow SLANZA members to use cover images in their libraries, for displays, cataloguing and so on.
