Welcome to Programapedia

Programapedia: The Synergistic Approach to Programming provides access to programming and presenter resources for use by any library. This project was created by staff of the Prairie Area Library System (PALS)and the Shawnee Library System (ShLS) in Illinois. Anyone may view the entries and utilize the data contained therein; however, only those librarians approved to be authors may add or edit data.

The program and presenter profiles offer details about programming events and presentations. These profiles may provide information including logistics, program description, costs, feedback and presentation materials, as available.

To be included in Programapedia, presenters must be available to Illinois libraries but may also be available outside of Illinois.

Getting Involved

Although anyone can view the site and take advantage of the contacts, authors (those who can add or edit data) must be from member libraries and approved to be authors. Library staff may request an author account for Programapedia. The account request is approved by the sponsoring library systems before entries can be added or edited.

Books available for checkout from Prairie Area and Shawnee Library Systems
