LM_NET is the original discussion group open to school library media specialists worldwide, and to people involved with the school library media field. LM_NET provides an excellent way to network with other school library professionals, connect to new ideas in school library practice, seek advice, and ask library related questions. Consult LM_NET peers for relevant ongoing library on-the-job mentorship! I WANT TO SUBSCRIBE NOW – CLICK HERE!
We want to keep the activity and discussion focused on school library media. But, LM_NET can be used by library media people for many different things – to ask for input, share ideas and information, link programs that are geographically remote, make contacts, etc.
Conversations on LM_NET should focus on the topics of interest to the school library media community, including the latest on school library media services, operations, and activities. It is a group for practitioners helping practitioners, sharing ideas, solving problems, telling each other about new publications and up-coming conferences, asking for assistance or information, and linking schools through their library media centers.
As you know, we work very hard to keep LM_NET as “commercial-free” as possible. However, we don’t want you to miss useful announcements from vendors– particularly those messages about discounts, new products and specials. That’s where our vendor affiliate, EL-Announce comes in. Its purpose is to provide a select forum for commercial messages of interest to those in the library media field. It is a read-only, moderated list server, with one or two announcements per day– with no discussion. Your questions and inquiries should go directly to a specific vendor (if you desire).
We would like to recognize some companies that have been especially supportive of LM_NET, by sponsoring EL-Announce, as well as LM_NET Breakfasts and other events at regional and national gatherings of librarians. Please take a few minutes to visit these sites. They are so nice to LM_NET that we think you will like what they have to offer.
