Project Summary

The mission of the Rural Initiative Resources Clearinghouse (Resource Roundup) was 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 benefitted rural libraries by eliminating the need to "reinvent the wheel" for every new policy, practice, procedure or project needed at the local level.

The project was funded by the California State Library as part of the Rural Initiative. 

The site was built using PHP and Javascript.  It went live in January, 2007.  The website is no longer supported by the State Library.
