Rural Initiative

Resource Round-Up

The mission of the Rural Initiative Resources Clearinghouse (Resource Roundup) is to create and maintain an online archive of resources to support California's rural public library directors and staff in serving their public mission more efficiently. By seeking out and sharing examples of commonly needed documents, materials, and programs in all aspects of library operations and services, the Clearinghouse benefits rural libraries by eliminating the need to "reinvent the wheel" for every new policy, practice, procedure or project needed at the local level.
