Libraries have a longstanding tradition of outreach to under-served populations. Public libraries in particular can be the strongest community advocates for people in crises by putting together information and resources to help these people in their time of need. This site provides materials for librarians to use in their own in-house training and management. Every item in this site requires minimal internet access so each item should load quickly.


This site provides resources for librarians to use in enhancing their staff training, community interactions, and service design initiatives in the areas found above.
