Welcome to the New SLJ.com | Editorial

We are pleased to debut our new presence in a soft launch. Please bear with us as we vigorously address a few bugs, and give us feedback what needs to be fixed. 

SLJ's new website has arrived. We are pleased to debut our new presence in a soft launch. Please bear with us as we vigorously address a few bugs. In fact, if you are game, as an early visitor to the site, we invite your comments and direction on what needs to be fixed. 

This new platform, developed in tandem with Library Journal’s new site, is a major step for us. We have long wanted a website that better reflects the energy and creativity in the field, but also one that is easier to use—on all devices—enables you to find what you are looking for, and encourages exploration. 

The site's thematic organization is envisioned to do that, helping you dive deeper into areas of interest and pointing out the range of our coverage. Take a look at the top navigation to get a sense of what I mean. We have loaded content dating back to 2016, and more will be coming as we continue to migrate content from the old site. 

One of the biggest steps in our evolution is an improvement in the mobile experience. The new site also offers enhanced functionality, from advanced search to a personal profile where you can collect and share the stories and reviews you find most useful or enjoyable. More community functions are on the way. 

Importantly, the new site means more timely reviews, published daily, and the Reviews+ theme showcases the range of coverage we do around books, collection development, and readers’ advisory. 

You will also see the introduction of levels of access--with premium content for paid subscribers. We invest heavily in the journalism we produce, developing great content that you can use, and we can't do it without support from you. Print subscribers are automatically also premium subscribers, and details are on their way to you about how to log in and get started or take a look at the FAQ’s. For those who are not yet subscribers, we feel this content is worth your investment--and we certainly hope you agree. 

Remember, this is still in beta, so we welcome your help finding bugs, as well as your feedback in general.  Thank you for reading!
