Collection Development

The purpose of this Web site is to assist librarians, literacy program managers in libraries, and community-based literacy program staff in identifying resources for inclusion in their instructional programs and literacy resource libraries.

A major objective is to maintain a dynamic site that serves as an online exchange of ideas, resources, and tools that have proven useful in one library or program and that may be useful in another setting . . . utilizing what's already in the field and saving resources.

If you see anything missing, or have recommendations for items to include in the site, please contact Dale Lipschultz at
