Teacher Librarian: The Journal for School Library Professionals

Teacher Librarian: The Journal for School Library Professionals is one of the leading journals designed specifically for professionals working with children and young adults in school libraries. The name Teacher Librarian reflects the journal’s focus on the essential role of the school librarian, or “teacher-librarian,” as an  educator and  a partner and collaborator with classroom teachers, school administrators, and others. This philosophy is advocated for and adopted by a large and growing number of the most successful and influential school library professionals in the United States and internationally.

Teacher Librarian’s roster of authors and columnists reads like a who’s who of school librarianship. TL’s editorial advisory board consists of recognized leaders of the profession in the Unites States, Canada, and worldwide. The journal is co-edited by Dr. David Loertscher, professor at San Jose State University, former president of the American Association of School Librarians, noted author, and one of the most popular and influential speakers in the school library arena; and noted library consultant Dr. Elizabeth “Betty” Marcoux, formerly at the school of Information Studies, University of Washington.

TL’s digital edition, available free to print subscribers and as a digital-only subscription, provides a fully searchable version of the magazine, including all advertisements and announcements.
