IMLS Calls for Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Grant Applications

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invites libraries, archives, and library agencies, associations, and consortia to apply for the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant program

The program supports efforts to recruit and educate the next generation of librarians, as well as the faculty who will prepare them for careers in library science. It also supports grants for research related to library education and staffing needs; curriculum development; early career development programs for tenure-track library and information science faculty; and continuing education and training for current librarians and their staff.

The application deadline is December 17, 2007.

Applications, guidelines, and examples of successful proposals can be found on the agency’s Web-site.
