Our community has shared that the cost of ongoing education is a major factor in the widening skills gap. Individuals and teams, especially smaller teams and younger professionals, often simply cannot afford the resources that many of our community leaders have worked tirelessly to produce. Additionally, we’ve heard that one of the most valuable opportunities we can provide is facilitating direct access to experts in order to further discuss topics covered in these books. With all of this in mind, our Coalition Collection Library seeks to meet this need head-on and provide free books to community members who otherwise would not have access. When possible, we will also facilitate ‘Expert Chats’ to help learners dig in deeper.
