The SLAMIT projectCzechNorsk Danish News:
SLAMIT builds on the experience and outcomes of the successful SLAM and GrandSLAM projects and now seeks to disseminate the development of school libraries to become full library and learning resource centres at the heart of the curriculum and the introduction of new enquiry based approaches and learning styles embedded within the curriculum.

The SLAMIT project now seeks to extend the work of these two earlier successful projects and to make the experience, knowledge and practice developed within these available to a far wider European audience. The project seeks to offer three annual conference events targeted at teachers, school librarians, headteachers and other education professionals and managers, local authority managers and others with responsibility for education policy and provision. The outcomes of these events will be a new cohort of education professionals willing to develop their local provision and acting as beacon sites to initiate changes throughout their local, regional and national provisions.

Bringing together a cohort of individuals with an interest in libraries, information centres and new learning styles is an opportunity to disseminate the practical benefits of trans-national cooperation, in both practical and physical form (through Comenius, Minerva etc.) as well as promoting the newer e-Twinning and computer mediated partnerships.
