The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has launched a new website for its online, referred research journal, School Library Research (SLR). The new website coincides with a new name for the journal formerly known as School Library Media Research (SLMR). The name change reflects the adoption of the professional title, “school librarian,” and a rebirth for the journal, which presents research on instructional theory, teaching methods and critical issues relevant to school libraries and school librarians. The new website can be found at www.ala.org/aasl/slr.
In addition to the new features, the website launch also marks the publication of the first three research papers of Volume 15 (2012):
- “Seeing the Same: Follow-Up Study on the Portrayals of Disability in Graphic Novels by Young Adults” by Robin Moeller and Marilyn Irwin
- “Retrospective Reflection: Insight into Pre-Service School Librarians’ Competencies and Skill Development as Revealed through Field Notes” by Elyse Dequoy and Joette Stefl-Mabry
Serials: New Website, New Look for School Library Research; Three New Research Papers Also Released
