School Library Staff Transitions


Some of you may be retiring, changing jobs, or moving, and that means someone new will staff your school library next year. If this applies to you and you already know who next year’s library staff will be, please send me the new person’s name and email address plus the name of the school. Around the beginning of next school year, I will make sure they are signed up for OSLIST so they are in the loop about OSLIS and its resources, including the statewide databases. 

If you don’t know who the new library staffer will be, please still let me know you are leaving, and I will unsubscribe you from OSLIST sometime during the summer.

Also, please leave information about OSLIST for the person who will take over. It can be something quick like the example below my signature block. 

Thanks for your work in school libraries in support of students.
