With funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the ConnectedLib Toolkit helps librarians incorporate digital media into their work with youth to promote connections across learning contexts. We are currently working with the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) and the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) to expand the toolkit to better meet the needs of library staff working in rural areas and small libraries.

Developed by Mimi Ito and members of the Connected Learning Research Network, the connected learning framework emphasizes creative and social learning experiences that are driven by learners’ personal interests.
