Find additional resources for library directors, youth services/programming staff, and support personnel in the WRLS Knowledgebase.

What is the WRLS Knowledgebase? The WRLS Knowledgebase is a self-service library of articles, links, worksheets, templates, pre-made publicity templates and posts, and shared documents. Visit the WRLS Knowledgebase through SharePoint in your WRLS Outlook Account or through this link.

Need help accessing the WRLS Knowledgebase? Email itsupport@wrlsweb.org.

WRLS Wonders Podcast

Listen to the WRLS Wonders Podcast here! Even though the podcast has been on a hiatus during the pandemic, expect an eventual return. The podcast is a great CE resource for library staff on the go.

Online Professional Journals 

This collection highlights a small portion of the more than 320 free, full-text journals and magazines in Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts with Full Text, an excellent, library-specific professional development collection from Badgerlink.
