The School Library Journal is published monthly. The journal is a very valuable resource to have access to as a school librarian. It is a wonderful resource to assist in collection development. The journal has articles that are on current issues and big ideas in school libraries. Pre-K though 12th grade level reading materials and media materials are reviewed by reliable sources. The authors of the articles and some reviewers are featured in the journal which allows the reader to determine the validity of the writers opinion. I also value the section on Spanish Language Material reviews. Unfortunately you have to subscribe to be able to access the full journal on-line, but featured articles and some reviews are available.
