Quickly Find New DEIA Resources, Activities, and More on the New STAR Net Website!
The STAR Library Network (STAR Net) recently launched a revamped version of our website that has been reorganized to make our content easier to explore and help library staff quickly find their desired resources in a timely manner.
Our new main navigation incorporates an expandable menu that accommodates a large number of options that will expedite your search, whether it be our latest/upcoming STEM Events, Professional Development opportunities, STEAM Resources, STEM Activity Clearinghouse activities or our newly created sections on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility and Making your Library's Case for STEM.
We hope you'll take some time in the next week or two to visit our new website and take it for a spin. Enjoy the ride!
