Sharing resources for veterans

Information literacy involves “communities of learning” (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2016, Introduction section).  Librarians learn from each other, and that learning includes the sharing of research/resource guides.  Since Veterans’ Day was last week,  I’ll share some guides for veterans.

The Connecticut State Library has a Service to Veterans and Military Families guide.  This guide covers education, employment, housing, health services, legal services, and more.

For a streamlined design I’ll single out the University of South Florida’s  Veteran Services guide.   It also includes news and media resources.

The University of Southern California’s Veterans Services guide foregrounds the services at USC.  This move shows attention to an important audience group, student veterans.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Veterans’ Resources guide adds diversity to the list.  It includes links for women veterans and minority veterans.

These are a small sample of the many fine guides out there.   Still, they are resources to share.  I share them and thank our  veterans–especially our USM student veterans–for their service.
