History of QSLA

QSLA had its beginnings in 1968 in Townville as the School Library Association of North Queensland. Another branch was formed later that year in Cairns. In 1969 it was decided to rename as SLAQ and a third and fourth branch formed in Brisbane and Rockhampton. Teleconferencing proved to be an effective means of communication and is one of the forums still used today for Council meetings. In 1991 SLAQ became an incorporated association. In 2015, the association changed its name to Queensland School Library Association.

QSLA has published a history of teacher-librarianship in Queensland, Resourceful Partnerships: 1968-2008. (link to product order form)
