Webliography http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/ SLJ is a valuable resource for libraries. It contains technology information, collaborative lesson plans for the librarian and teacher, book reviews for children and YA books, web site suggestions, and it features columns that relate to library issues. This is a great leadership tool because it offers the best advice for tough situations and presents the best resource options that are available for today’s librarian. http://www.libraryjournal.com/ LJ was the original corporation before SLJ.
