Service Learning and Civic Engagement

Bibliography of Resources

Service Learning Library Guide

The MSU Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement provided the Library with a listing of resources on Service-Learning related topics that they found valuable in their work. This guide adds access information and a few additional resources to the list to complete this bibliography that we hope will be useful to the MSU Service-Learning community.
