Abstract

Do you ever long for access to that great education resource you used in college? Or just wish there was an easy to way to keep up with all the best electronic, education-related resources available to you? Come learn about a new, education-specific professional development portal for on-the-job K-12 educators and school media specialists, developed through a partnership between EKU Librarians and KYVL. Though created with the goal of allowing and encouraging alumni of EKU’s College of Education to continue to access quality, library-vetted resources after graduation, this portal is readily and freely accessible to Kentucky teaching professionals of all sorts at any point in their careers. It is a “living” site which is updated frequently by librarians but which is constantly informed by suggestions and recommendations from those in the field, and which includes links and instructions on accessing peer-reviewed education journals and other popular publications, links to useful databases, and links to free, reliable websites specific to the field. Come and check out all that this great resource has to offer and spread the word to your librarian and teacher colleagues.
