Guide to Online Resources

The Guide to Online Resources was created as a companion to the IMLS Connecting to Collections Bookshelf, a core set of books, DVDs, online resources, and an annotated bibliography that was distributed free to nearly 3,000 collecting institutions. The resources that were located in the Guide have been expanded and moved to the Connecting to Collections Online Community. Click the links below to access available topics.
