Call to Action

Submit Your Successful School/Public Library Partnership

The AASL/ALSC/YALSA Interdivisional Committee on School/Public Library Cooperation is updating its clearinghouse of information about school/public library cooperative activities. The list of programs submitted in 2004 is located on the ALSC Web site –> Initiatives –> Partnerships –> Clearinghouse of School/Public Library Cooperative Programs.

Please submit your successful school/public library partnership. Your partnership story will be added to the clearinghouse and possibly shared at upcoming ALA conferences. Currently, the AASL/ALSC/YALSA Interdivisional Committee on School/Public Library Cooperation is planning for the AASL Conference in November 2009 and the 2010 ALA Annual Conference.

Thanks in advance!
Teresa Walls

on behalf of the entire committee: Connie Champlin (Chair), Sabrina Carnesi, Karen L. Egger, Ellen Jepson, Elisa McClain, Erika Thickman Miller, Cindy Pfeiffer and Tanya Tullos

    Two questions:

    1 – We want to update an existing entry. What is the best way to do so?
    2 – Is there a deadline?

    Excellent questions. Thanks, Christie! I will double check with Connie Champlin, the committee chair.

    I suggest you use the online submission form linked in the post. In the program title of the form, as well as the top of the description box, write that this is an update to an existing entry. As for deadline, I believe this as an ongoing clearinghouse so there should be no deadline. However to be included in the ALA sessions (either at AASL this fall or ALA in 2010) I would suggest a deadline of August to be included in the AASL session and February to be included in the ALA 2010 session.
