FYI: the journal for the information professional

FYI  is the quarterly print publication from the School Library Association of Victoria.

The journal aims to provide informative articles on a range of topics that are discussed and set by its Editorial Committee annually. The topics are chosen for their relevance to current issues which concern teacher-librarians, both secondary and primary in public and private schools. The topics range from technology to literature; from teaching students the information skills they will need in the twenty-first century to developing in students the skills and desire to become lifelong readers.
