IMLS Calls for Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Grant Applications
Application Deadline: December 15, 2008
<URL:http://www.imls.gov/news/2008/091508.shtm>

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invites
proposals from libraries, archives, and library agencies,
associations, and consortia for the Laura Bush 21st Century
Librarian grant program. Categories of funding for the Laura Bush
21st Century Librarian program are as follows:

    Doctoral programs in library and information science

    Master's programs in library and information science

    Research about library and information science as a profession,
    establishment of ongoing research capacity in graduate schools
    of library and information science, and research conducted by
    untenured, tenure-track faculty in graduate schools of library
    and information science in their field of research (Early Career
    Development program)

    Pre-professional programs to interest future professionals in
    library and information science as a career

    Programs to build institutional capacity in graduate schools of
    library and information science by developing or enhancing
    programs

    Continuing education for library and archives staff

The grant period for these projects is up to three years, except for
doctoral program projects, which may be up to four years.

In 2003, with a shortage of professional librarians on the horizon,
First Lady Laura Bush called on the Institute of Museum and Library
Services to help recruit "a new generation of librarians." Since
then, the Institute has funded 3,220 master's degree students, 186
doctoral students, 1,256 pre-professional students, and 26,186
continuing education students.

IMLS staff will be hosting two audio conference calls to provide an
opportunity for prospective applicants to learn more about the Laura
Bush 21st Century Librarian grant program. The calls will be held on
the following dates and times:

    Tuesday, October 21, 2008 at 2pm EST
    Thursday, November 6, 2008 at 2pm EST

Please check the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian page closer to
the date of the call for specific dial-in instructions.
