New Collection Unveiled

Created specifically for small and rural libraries.

It began with an observation: every week, we see email messages on listservs asking, “Hey, does anyone have a policy on [topic] they’d be willing to share?” followed by lots of “YES! I’m interested, too!”

An idea took root. CLiC’s Sara Wright and ARSL President Kieran Hixon started fertilizing their plan. What if there could be a central place where policies could be stored, searched and retrieved (but without a lot of complication)? How would it be nurtured and grown? Who would tend to this evolving tree of knowledge?

And the Tech Gnomes at CLiC went to work with their Digital saws and Hexcoded glues and Bit-sized hammers…

A new Public Library Policy Collection web site was grown — a mix of organic matter and online carpentry. The collection is the tree; the interface is the tree house.

We hope you enjoy playing in it.
