IMLS Calls for 2008 National Leadership Grant Applications

Deadline: February 1, 2008

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is accepting
grant applications for the agency's 2008 National Leadership Grant
(NLG) program. The deadline for submitting applications is February
1, 2008.

Now in their 10th year, National Leadership Grants have supported
the innovative thinking necessary to help libraries and museums meet
the changing needs of the American public.

This year's guidelines encourage projects that create partnerships
between libraries and museums, integrate new technologies, and
highlight the agency's focus on conservation and preservation.

The five funding categories include Advancing Digital Resources,
Library and Museum Collaboration, Collaboration Planning Grants,
Research Projects and Demonstration Projects.

Requests may range between $50,000 and $1,000,000. In addition,
collaborative planning grants of $40,000 are available for projects
involving more than one institution.

IMLS offers applicants an online tutorial at
<URL:http://www.imls.gov/project_planning> for developing a project
plan for a NLG application. IMLS has also scheduled two
audio-conference calls to give prospective applicants an opportunity
to ask the IMLS staff questions pertaining to National Leadership
Grants.
