170 librarians (nearly double the number of librarians interested in 2017) opted to join the Infiniscope Teaching Network at ALA Conference held in New Orleans June 22th-25th, 2018. Their membership provides free access to digital materials they find valuable in planning upcoming STEAM outreach events hosted by their libraries. Librarians were excited because the content can be used:

  • as a bookmark on a web browser as a no maintenance resource for patrons to explore;

  • in national Collaborative Summer Library Program for 2019’s theme A Universe of Stories;

  • for summer and after school STEAM programs;

  • in universities for STEAM outreach events; and

  • in school libraries K-20 as modified content that meets the needs of their individual communities they serve.
