How NYCSLIST Became the Go-To Resource for New York City School Librarians
Librarians are among the true "power users" of LISTSERV email lists. A simple query of CataList, the official catalog of LISTSERV lists, shows 588 different lists, and that only includes public lists. Librarians from schools, universities, historical venues, governments and other organizations have been using LISTSERV for decades. This feature on librarians' work with LISTSERV spotlights email list tips, experiences and insights shared by Melissa Jacobs, List Owner, NYCSLIST.
NYC School Library Association
HVLA Membership Form
Thank you for your interest in joining or continuing your membership with the Hudson Valley Library Association (HVLA) the local professional organization serving independent and non-public school librarians! We ask each member to (re)register in the fall, even if you previously joined mid-year, so that we have the most accurate information about our members for the new school year.
Formed in 1959, HVLA brings together librarians primarily from independent K-12 schools in the New York City, Long Island, Westchester and nearby New Jersey and Connecticut communities. With a minimum of formality and a maximum of benefit, members meet three times a year to discuss and consider a wide range of topics, including evaluation of books and reading programs, technology and libraries, information literacy, and professional development. An active listserv keeps us connected between meetings. In addition, divisional groups exist for lower, middle, and upper school librarians to discuss curricular and collection-related interests.
