I am excited to blog today about the new South Carolina Association of School Librarians website. I am on the Information Technology Committee, and some of our focus has been on getting our website renovated.  We hired a SCASL Webmaster, Mike Heath, and I kid you not when I say this is significantly more (and […]

Our annual conference is finished once again, and I’m trying to process. It will take me days to really think through everything. There was quite a bit of buzz about school budget cuts, LMS jobs being endangered, and many many friends not present.  I am pleased to report that at our final event, the SCASL […]
