About the SLA Website

We have given our website a fresh new style and reorganised it to make it easier for you to find the information you are looking for. We have introduced a number of new features, including adding comments to blog notes and the ability to change your username and password.

It will also be easier for us to maintain and expand the website, improving the facilities we can offer to Members.


  • The navigation menu on the left has been organised into logical sections, which should make it easier for new visitors and experienced users alike to find their way around the site
  • We have added the facility for visitors to add comments to blog entries
  • Many pages have been completely redesigned and made more visually appealing
  • A new overview list of publications shows at a glance the range of publications available from the SLA
  • A complete list of training courses (with map) gives an easy overview of which courses are coming up, and where they are
  • Non-members can now see what The School Librarian has to offer by downloading a free sample issue
  • The Advice and Support sections have been re-organised into sections by subject
  • Members can now choose their own username and password, to make logging in easier
  • Members can choose to have the system "remember" them between visits
  • Members can now subscribe to an e-mail newsletter which will provide regular updates about what's new on the SLA website
