Ito, M., & Martin, C. (Fall 2013). Connected Learning and the Future of Libraries. Young Adult Library Services, 12(1), 29–32.

Ito and Martin provide an overview of how libraries are “uniquely situated to become a nexus of connected learning because their mission centers on personalized and interest-driven learning” and they are “well-positioned to not only connect formal and informal learning but also to do this for the populations that are most marginalized in terms of traditional academic programs and indicators” (p. 30).
