ISLMA-Share is the new ISLMA discussion list replacing the previous islmanet-l listserv. It is an electronic discussion list for anyone who is interested in school library media programs and who has an e-mail address for sending and receiving electronic mail.

ISLMA-Share is hosted by the Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS). This is the place where school library media specialists and others interested in what's happening in school library media programs in Illinois can come together over the Internet to share ideas, resources, problems, and solutions - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Please have patience as we make the transition from the old to the new list. There could be some unexpected issues come up. We will take care of those as soon as possible.
If you are currently subscribed to the listserv your new subscription should be automatic.
If you are not currently subscribed please click here for instructions on joining.
