Last updated 22 July, 2021. See the latest entry.
The Australian School Library Association Inc. is the national authority, the peak forum in the field of teacher librarianship and school library resource services. Its aim is to maximise opportunities for students to obtain independent lifelong learning and decision making skills. In this time of educational challenge with learning and teaching forced offsite and online, ASLA wil not waver in this commitment. To this end ASLA provides these resources for parents and carers to support the work that school library staff is doing in schools across our nation.
