Knowledge Center Service

A unique offering in the open institutional repository space



Content-rich and connected — our Knowledge Center Service is your total solution for knowledge sharing.

Showcase your organization’s knowledge.

Promote the insights and analysis of your grantees.

Share the works of your network members.

Create a library from IssueLab’s collections.

The Knowledge Center Service lets you leverage IssueLab’s technology to quickly and easily spin up an institutional repository that does so much more than a stand-alone 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 automatically become part of the collective intelligence of the social sector.


You can lightly customize your Candid-hosted collection or use IssueLab’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 IssueLab’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.
