School Librarians’ Network – an essential resource

A lot of readers will already know about the amazing email list called School Librarians’ Network (SLN).  In fact, most of the articles on Heart come from SLN members.  But for those of you who have not caught up with this amazing resource, this is how you join.  School Librarians’ Network is a Yahoo Group, and to join SLN you first have to have a Yahoo identity.  This is quick and easy – just ensure that you put that you are a school librarian, or if your job is of interest to us.  We have many authors on the list, for instance.  There are 1000+ of us on there so it is probably best that you use a different email to your school one, as there are a large volume of emails a day. (You can of course access all emails straight on the site).  SLN is a wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom – whatever you ask, someone, somewhere, has done it before and has great advice to offer.  We also have a huge files section, worth it’s weight in gold!  You won’t regret joining SLN, the brainchild of school librarian Elizabeth Bentley, who moderates the group. Simply send a blank email to :

sln-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

to access the group.  You will still need your Yahoo profile set up to access the files.  Hope to see you there!
