2009 National Leadership Grant Guidelines Now Available

    <URL:http://www.imls.gov/news/2008/111408.shtm>

Deadline for applications: February 1, 2009

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is accepting
grant applications for the agency's 2009 National Leadership Grant
(NLG) program. Applications, guidelines, and examples of successful
proposals can be found on the agency's Web site.  The deadline for
submitting applications is February 1, 2009.

For the past 11 years, the National Leadership Grants program has
been the capstone program for IMLS, providing the agency's highest
level of support for innovative projects that provide important
research, tools, and models for library and museum programs across
the country.

Museums and libraries interested in submitting NLG proposals to IMLS
can apply to one of two funding categories: Projects or Planning
Grants.  Each of these categories comprises four project types:
Advancing Digital Resources, Library and Museum Collaboration,
Research Projects, and Demonstration Projects.

IMLS encourages the use of an approach called outcome-based planning
and evaluation (OBPE) when it is appropriate for the type of project
to be conducted. Any project that identifies learning or education
for any audience among its goals should plan to measure
representative outcomes for that aspect of its work. Information
about evaluation is available on the IMLS Web site here or on
request from IMLS.

The Institute has scheduled two conference calls to give prospective
applicants an opportunity to ask the IMLS staff questions pertaining
to National Leadership Grants.

    Wednesday, December 10
    2 pm EST
    Participant Dial-In Number: 800-603-9527
    Conference ID: 72459467
