In addition to SPI's training and technical assistance and outreach activities, our team has also collated a library of resources related to SPI's core practices. We continually add to this library, which includes over 550 individual resources. These resources are tagged by both major and sub-categories, as seen in the menu. You can browse all resources in a particular category by selecting an item from the menu.  Recently added resources can be found on the SPI website home page and a random selection of resources is listed in the table below as an example of the resources available in our library.

You can also conduct keyword searches of the library using the search box on this page.
