Welcome to SLANSW
The School Library Association of NSW is a professional association centred on professional learning, advocacy and research. We welcome new members who are interested in learning about, and supporting and advocating for, the importance of school libraries as a part of the K-12 educational experience.
Our mission is to promote the professional interests of teacher librarians and support staff in school libraries to equip students to become digital citizens and lifelong learners.
SLANSW is a longstanding professional association. Established in April, 1964, it has a strong history of promoting and sustaining the central role of school libraries in significantly contributing to student achievement.More about us
Personal members gain access to professional learning and networking (both face-to-face and online), professional resources, advocacy and awards.
