From the Library
Greetings! The Workshop Research Library is excited to report that we have new resources related to governance and commons issues. Recently we started working on a Researcher’s Toolkit to help with teaching classes and offer reading lists, past syllabi and other resources. We will be updating this page regularly so check back, or let us know about any items we might have missed.

Another resource is the Elinor Ostrom Living Bibliography. We've had this resource for a while, but are always adding new books and articles written about Lin to it.

We hope to update our Library Catalog and the Digital Library of the Commons this year also, and will let you know when that happens. Happy reading!
