Library Technology Grants
The Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) was signed into law September 30, 1996 as part of the Museum and Library Services Act. As a result, federal LSTA funds are distributed from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to states for the purposes of increasing the use of technology in libraries, fostering better resource sharing among libraries, and targeting library services to special populations. For more information about the current IMLS five-year plan, please visit the IMLS website.
The Indiana State Library manages distribution of LSTA funds according to an IMLS-approved five-year plan for the funds (also read the formal evaluation of the 2008-2012 five-year plan). Visit LSTA Supports Indiana Libraries to learn about the LSTA-funded statewide services and sub-grants offered by the Indiana State Library.
