The Connexions Online Library is a work in progress of Connexions Information Sharing Services, founded in 1975 to connect individuals and organizations working for social change with each other, with information and ideas, and with the general public. Documents posted come from the Connexions Digest, a publication which reviewed several thousand resources and published articles on social justice topics, from the Connexions Annual, a social change sourcebook, as well as from a variety of other publications and print and online sources.
