Workforce Services


This section includes resources to help your library provide services and support to job seekers, small business and entrepreneurial start-ups, and the unemployed. Browse the Materials section for resources to create localized staff training session on workforce services in your library or region. Many of the resources here were collected as part of the IMLS-funded Project Compass, a national initiative to support public libraries' services to the struggling workforce.
