The K-20 Librarian Project
Kansas City librarians recently announced the launch of a new national libraries initiative called “K-20 Librarian”. The first local consortium, initiated by the KCK Public Library, begins as a new collaboration of school, public and academic librarians seeking to lower technological and administrative barriers to deeper integration of services from area educational, cultural and civic institutions. With over 66,000 of our nation’s K-12 schools, public libraries, colleges and universities, museums, and other cultural, artistic, historic, and scientific organizations connected to an international fabric of advanced research and education networks, the infrastructure is now in place, and improving each year, to support unprecedented trans-institutional cooperation and program sharing between libraries and experimentation with advanced applications and services.
