BREAKING NEWS: ASLA is proud to announce...

Dr Margaret Merga, in partnership with ASLA, has been successful in obtaining funding from BUPA to undergo a ground-breaking research project entitled:  School libraries promoting wellbeing in Australian primary and secondary schools: An exploratory study. 

This study will provide research-based evidence for the important role that school libraries and school library staff play in promoting positive mental health in schools across Australia. ASLA thanks Dr Merga for this initiative and looks forward to working together on this very worthwhile research project.
