The School Library Association of Queensland (SLAQ) is the peak association providing opportunities for members to collaborate and support the vision of their school communities in developing students as lifelong learners.
The association is committed to dispelling misconceptions surrounding the work of teacher-librarians. Teacher-librarians’ work is far beyond just books and has a vital role within Queensland schools.
SLAQ introduces "Synergy" to members
SLAQ is pleased to announce that Members have access to "Synergy", the partially refereed journal published by the School Library Association of Victoria (SLAV). "Synergy" brings members a wider view of the world of librarianship with particular emphasis on current research, direction and ideas in education practice.

SLAQ urges Queenland teacher-librarians and library staff to support the Igiveagonski campaign
The Gonski review into school funding has revealed the lack of support that Australian schools are receiving. One outcome of this lack of support has been the gradual erosion of school library facilities and staff in Queensland. We urge all our members to support the Igiveagonski campaign to make sure the recommendations of the report are implemented.
