Thanks for sharing this list, @martaalmela - it is always interesting to see which resources are being accessed the most from our nearly 1800 available resources.

Hi all, May you a good day. It’s nice to see you all. Thank you @michaelotto for looping me in and thanks @martaalmela for sharing the list. This is exciting and inspiring update for IAP. I just share this good news with my team. We are now distributing the Community Action Guide in Portuguese, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese as well so that it will reach out directly to more local communities. All the best, Thien

Hi @SolinaKennedy, thank you for letting us know! We will make sure to upload it to the Resource Library :books:

Thanks alot Marta for sharing such an apt and relevant Resources. By the way, I was thinking if some of those resources( e.g most voted for)can be accessed in a physical book form because they might be huge and eye disturbing as you look the screen. With the book, you don’t need internet or data bundles.

I was also interested in Resources starting with paralegal training but the search bar isn’t working for me.

Hi @AhmedMohamed, we are glad to hear that you are finding the Network’s resource library useful. Thanks for sharing your suggestions, as well as your feedback regarding the search bar. We are working on improving the latter. For now, although more time consuming, you can type “paralegal” and then look for those resources that have “paralegal training” in their title.
