Capturing Connected Learning in Libraries

About This Study

The Capturing Connected Learning in Libraries (CCLL) project is a research+practice collaboration between the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL), the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the YOUMedia Community of Practice and the Connected Learning Research Network (CLRN) that enables libraries to better assess learning outcomes for their connected learning programs and boost their ability to use evaluation data to improve those programs. Spaces, programs, and research for connected learning in libraries have been supported since 2009 by cooperative funding by IMLS and the MacArthur Foundation. This project integrates and amplifies existing stakeholders and projects in this larger connected learning in libraries effort.
