What is Project Connect?

It's action. It's people. It's leadership for school libraries.

Future ready librarians work with district leaders to promote innovative learning opportunities for students. But where do you start?
 
Follett formed Project Connect to advocate for librarians as district leaders so that students can learn digital literacy, modern research techniques and cutting-edge skills that apply across all subject areas. We help librarians transform their library spaces into vibrant hubs of digital learning by giving them ideas and resources to become future ready.

We recently launched Professional Development courses for librarians. These online Microcredential courses help librarians and other educators develop a vision and plan to promote digital learning in their library. Click on the PD page to learn more.
