School Libraries Group Scotland

The School Libraries Group (Scotland) is the Scottish Branch of the School Libraries Group (SLG), a special interest group of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP).

Our aims are:

  • To support and promote the professional interests of School Librarians throughout Scotland.

  • To raise awareness of the role of professionally qualified librarians and of the potential of School Library Resource Centres.

What does SLG Scotland do?

  • Encourages discussion of matters relating to School Librarianship.

  • Offers help and support to members throughout Scotland.

  • Publishes a newsletter approximately twice a year to keep school librarians informed of issues and developments within the sector.

For more information, please see our blog posts on the main CILIPS blog. We would love to include the fantastic work being done by other school librarians across Scotland. To be included in the School Library Group blog posts, complete this form.

On 16th June 2021, SLG Scotland ran a popular and inspiring event featuring Elizabeth Hutchinson, sharing insights into FOSIL and ‘Librarians as Teachers of Sense Making Skills’, and a SLIC update from Lindsey Henderson. For the slides or to watch the recording, please click here.
