It can be tough to keep up. These resource guides can help.
It can be tough to keep up with all we need to know about issues that arise in library work, but IHLS is making it a little easier with a series of resource guides on current issues in librarianship. Use the links below or in the menu to explore new and long-standing library topics, as well as to find tool kits and other resources that can help your library provide quality library services. Additional resource guides will be added regularly, as new topics arise.
