“WebJunction has partnered with the State Library of North Carolina to manage Project Compass, a 12-month program funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to identify how unemployment is currently affecting individuals in the U.S., how state and local libraries are responding to meet urgent user needs for workforce resources, and how to facilitate conversations that will advance library services to best meet these challenges over the coming year.”
