Financial Literacy Education Resources

Posted to From the Reference Desk... by Sarah Tenfelde-Dubois

Understanding the workings of personal finance, financial planning, lifestyle flexibility and locating helpful services become important tools in life. This includes starting at a young age and learning to make wise decisions about earning and spending, then moving on to thinking about how to prepare for retirement.

To help with financial literacy education, the State Library of Kansas has put together resources that might be helpful in education for all individuals, regardless of current life phase or economic status. For more information, please see our Financial Literacy for Kansans page. 

If you are a librarian or educator who wants to create a financial literacy program, the State Library has created a resource page that contains links to various curriculum resources, programming ideas, and possible grant opportunities.  The programming section has several links to free financial education publications that can be ordered for libraries. Also, be sure to check out the additional resources in the left hand column.

Feel free to use these helpful and knowledgeable links to find information on different topics of financial literacy and personal finance.

Resource Sharing Today (2014)

Resource Sharing Today

Resource Sharing Today (2014)

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield

Budget constraints challenge collection development in unprecedented ways. Collection development has increasingly become a cooperative effort among libraries in geographic proximity. When their own library doesn't have certain books or journals, users turn to interlibrary loan to obtain the resources they need. However, many library science degree programs don't cover interlibrary loan. Resource Sharing Today is a practical guide to resource sharing starting with the library across town and ending with libraries on the other side of the globe. Chapters cover everything from the ALA's interlibrary loan form to successful innovations such as Virginia Tech's ILLiad to New York's IDS (Information Delivery Service). Appendices include regional, state, national, and international ILL codes, ALA and IFLA forms, open access agreements, and purchase on demand plans.
