The LAWDS project brings together public library staff with regional Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) and Wisconsin Job Centers, to facilitate more seamless support of job-seeking patrons, business owners, and entrepreneurs. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
