NJLA reached out to our follow librarians and consortium leaders to share resources they have collected. We believe it is extremely useful to try to collect all of these materials in one place.  This is not an extensive list and we will be updating it frequently.  Currently it is a list of information resources and professional development ideas.  If you have any added resources or suggestions, please send to Pat Tumulty, at [email protected]/   We need to share with each other. 

Please forgive the formatting.  Trying to get something out to you quickly.
