The Institute of Museum and Library Services(IMLS) is an independent agency of the US federal government. The IMLS is mainly responsible for providing federal support to over 100,000 museums and about 17,000 libraries located in the US.


The work of IMLS is primarily geared towards the creation of strong libraries and museums that would hopefully bridge connections between people, ideas and information.

In line with its goals and mission, the IMLS has recently established a funding opportunity to support the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.


The Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program revolves around improving then country's information infrastructure through the utilization of funding projects that are designed to address the education and training needs of certain professionals who help build, maintain and provide the public with immediate access to some of the world's vast and wide-ranging information systems and resources.


The primary objective of Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program is to hone and develop the potential of faculty and library leaders, to encourage and recruit future librarians and archivists, to enable professionals to conduct research studies, to be able to build institutional capacity in graduate schools of library and information science education, and finally, to be able to offer assistance in the professional growth and development of librarians and archivists.
