SLASA also facilitates online communication through SLASANET: an email discussion list for SA library staff.
slasanet is an open forum for issues affecting school libraries and an information network for events and activities of interest to members. It is intended to foster a collegiate sharing of ideas, resources, concerns etc., which we hope will be particularly valuable for people working in school libraries in regional and remote locations of the state.
All are welcome to participate, you don't need to be a SLASA Member.
NB: The server that hosts SLASAnet has unexpectedly had to be disabled. We are investigating options but unfortunately it is not currently able to be used.
We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Forming networks through online communities can be useful to help connect library staff with colleagues, share ideas and develop professionally.
You can find SLASA on
Facebook: SA School Libraries
Other online communities are facilitated by different Library Management systems; interested library/readers groups and by following Twitter feeds.

Networks and Hub Groups
There are many informal support networks and hub groups available throughout South Australia.
Hub Groups enable school library staff working in the same library type and/or region to meet regularly for support and networking. Hub Groups are formed and organised voluntarily by interested members with the agenda decided by mutual agreement. They may include professional development, discussion on current issues, library visits, celebrations and social activities.
