Announcing the ConnectedLib Toolkit for Youth-Serving Library Professionals and Professionals-in-Training

Researchers at the University of Washington (Katie Davis, Ligaya Scaff, Milly Romeijn-Stout) and the University of Maryland (Mega Subramaniam, Kelly Hoffman) are delighted to announce the launch of the ConnectedLib Toolkit, a research-based professional development toolkit that sup­ports librar­y staff in their efforts to lever­age new media tech­nolo­gies and pro­mote youth’s con­nected learn­ing expe­ri­ences in libraries. The development of the toolkit was made possible by generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The toolkit, which is hosted on GitHub, offers youth-serving library professionals and professionals-in-training a set of free, customizable, and self-paced modules that will help them plan, develop, and assess innovative and engaging programs for their teen patrons. In developing the toolkit, our primary objective was to create a set of resources that could be readily tailored to the wide variety of settings in which youth library programs are developed and offered.
