The article, titled “Using Technology to Support Equity and Inclusion in Youth Library Programming: Current Practices and Future Opportunities,” describes the findings of the first year of the three-year IMLS-funded ConnectedLib project. The goal of the project is to develop a suite of continuing education modules for public youth librarians interested in using connected learning principles to help youth develop 21st century skills. The ConnectedLib team hopes this article is as open and accessible as the project that generated it. Allowing this article to be open access increases awareness of the ConnectedLib project and resources, resulting in increased use and recognition by the library community. In addition, the findings reported in the article contribute to providing more equitable opportunities for non-dominant youth through public libraries.
