Synergy is read by many different people all over the world, and we are very fortunate to publish authors from many different countries. We welcome this, and encourage it, as one of the driving forces behind Synergy is an interest in looking outside of our own Victorian association to the views of others, and also outside of teacher librarianship to the broader concerns of education. In this, the first issue of 2020, we have articles from local practitioners and pieces from Canada, Croatia, the USA and Switzerland. Such diversity is important, sometimes challenging, and always engaging. While the world continues to suffer a dreadful pandemic, one of the most important things we can do is continue to learn, to share, and to collaborate.
