Statement from the state librarian regarding changes to online tools during 2021.
“The State Library partners with libraries across Iowa to cost share a variety of online resources to align with our mission of expanding information to Iowans. Currently, we are in the process of acquiring new resources that have been identified as priorities with input from Iowa librarians. We are excited at the potential these resources have to allow people to learn new skills, give students research tools and help with homework, and arm librarians with more information sources to assist patrons. The process to secure and launch these resources will take a few more months, and we appreciate your patience and believe the new resources will be worth the wait. Thank you for your interest and if you have any questions, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Michael Scott, State Librarian of Iowa
