The MET Bookshelf

The MET Bookshelf contains books written – and donated – by MET members. Books placed on this travelling bookshelf are relevant to MET's objective of “fostering high-quality language support services” and can be perused at METMs and MET workshops. If you have written a book that might be suitable for inclusion, or if you are interested in being a future guardian, please contact MET's Vice-chair.
