National Leadership Grants


The Institute of Museum and Library Services, more commonly referred to as IMLS, is an independent agency of the United States of America that is generally responsible for supporting all of the nation's libraries and museums.

The attempts of the IMLS are all patterned towards the achievement of their overall agency mission which is to "create strong libraries and museums that connect people with information and ideas."

In keeping with this mission, the Institute of Museum and Library Services has been running the National Leadership Grants Program in an effort to address the issues and concerns that stand in the way of libraries, museums, and other archive centers or fields.

The program also seeks to generate proposals that will lead to the development of new tools, up to date research findings, new models, services, practices, and alliances that have the potential to be widely utilized, scaled, adapted, and replicated.

In addition, the IMLS has also requested for this year's proposals to be in line with these three major goals:

1) Create a learner-centered experience and show support to activities in museums and libraries that will eventually encourage people to take part in their local community and in the global society.
