ILEAD USA Utah 2013

Utah was one of five states participating in ILEAD USA (Innovative Librarians Explore, Apply and Discover) in 2013. ILEAD USA was a year-long program designed to help library staff understand and respond to user needs through the application of participatory technology tools and the creation of an easy-to-replicate model program.

The six ILEAD USA Utah 2013 projects were:

  1. Utah Accessible Tutorials provides videos, webinars, training, & information to librarians working with patrons with a variety of physical, mental and leaning disabilities.
  2. Utah Author Visits helps Utahns find or submit author public events in Utah. Subscribe to the calendar to keep informed.
  3. Utah Bookmobiles created a a tug at your heartstrings video showing the importance of Bookmobiles in rural Utah.
  4. Creative Libraries Utah provides a space where libraries can share and freely use library created resources. Materials are public domain or use Creative Commons licenses.
  5. Digitizing Community Resources is working with the Salt Lake City Public Library & the Church History Library to digitize obituaries and user generator content. No website yet.
