Services > Knowledge centers

Content-rich and connected, the knowledge center service is a unique offering in the institutional repository space, and the social sector’s solution for knowledge sharing far and wide.

  • Showcase your organization’s knowledge.
  • Promote the insights and analysis of your grantees.
  • Share the works of your network members.
  • Create a library from Issue Lab’s collections.

The knowledge center service lets you leverage Issue Lab’s technology to quickly and easily spin up an institutional repository that does so much more than a stand-alone website publications section ever could do.

What makes this service truly unique is that your knowledge center is part of a larger, networked knowledge management system. Add your knowledge assets to your knowledge center and they’re automatically pushed to knowledge seekers wherever they may be.



You can lightly customize your Candid-hosted collection or use Issue Lab’s application programming interface (API) to bring knowledge center content into your environment and preferred design.


Actively curate and add your own titles or select and share titles in Issue Lab’s collection. Or auto-curate and we’ll save relevant content to your knowledge center for you.


Your content is shared far and wide through Candid’s web properties, with Candid’s social media subscribers, and with our data partners like Worldcat.


If you have any questions or want to get in touch with IssueLab staff directly, feel free to contact us.
