Look at What's New in SLM's 29th year:
We have exciting content lined up for Volume 29 of SLM that will keep readers up-to-date with many ideas for rethinking, reinventing, and reimagining school libraries!Remember, we always look forward to hearing from you. —Deb Levitov: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Volume 29 we will bring you two new columns:

In Volume 29, Key Words in Instruction is getting a new name: Key Concepts in Instruction. The column will continue the excellent content.

We look forward to this next SLM volume where we continue the tradition of sharing the knowledge, insight, and expertise of school library professionals. We will also extend our network to many guest authors, reaching out to a larger network of professionals from other disciplines. In this way SLM can bring new ideas to school librarians that can be used to benefit students, teachers, administrators, and the larger learning community. It is also a simple way to establish communication outside the school library world, serving as yet another form of advocacy by building connections and understanding.
