Iowa librarians sharing with Iowa librarians. That is a short way of explaining what Iowa Library Commons is about.
An important part of the strategic plan for the State Library was increased and improved communication between all library stakeholders. In the Strategic Plan FY13-FY17 was this activity: "Develop a process for identifying, collecting & sharing success stories." Iowa Library Commons is the result of this and represents the vision of Iowa Library Services and the Advisory Committee as well as contributions from all types and sizes of Iowa Libraries.
