Introduction to the SLA in Chinese (Simplified)

The School Library Association 建基于英国,会员遍布欧洲及世界各地。欢迎有志投身学校图书馆之人士加入,一切资料皆以英语书写和刊印。

我们向会员提供谘询服务, 训练课程,各种刊物和本会出版的论文期刊 The School Librarian。SLA的本地和地区分馆分别位于英格兰及威尔斯,而国际分馆则设于苏格兰,北爱尔兰以及爱尔兰共和国。

我们倡导学校图书馆的发展和代表学校图书馆管理员。为提升公众对学校图书馆现行良好操守之关注, SLA 于 2004 年创立了 :the SLA School Librarian of the Year Award 。 此外, 每年十月的首个星期一,我们都会庆祝国际学校图书馆日 (International School Libraries Day) 藉此推广公众对学校图书馆的兴趣。


  • 我们深信每一个学生皆应享有高效率的学校图书馆服务。SLA致力支持每位参与学校图书馆的人士,为大众提供优质阅读及学习的机会。

如有任何有关英国学校图书馆的疑问, 欢迎以英语查询, 我们非常乐意为你解答。
