Library Literacy Program. Analysis of Funded Projects 1992. Title VI, Library Services and Construction Act.
Humes, Barbara; Lyons, Carol Cameron
This document examines the types of projects funded by the Library Literacy Program in fiscal year 1992. The variety of literacy activities supported under the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI reflect the diversity of literacy needs in states and communities across the nation. Many factors influence a library's choice of activities for a literacy project, including demographics of the target population, economic base of the community, availability of literacy services, and nature of existing literacy or adult education services. Section I discusses major developments taking place among the LSCA Title VI projects and includes selected examples; Section II discusses characteristics common to most of the LSCA Title VI projects; Section III presents several projects that are using unique approaches to provide literacy services; Section IV provides an exhaustive list of literacy activities culled from all of the projects; Section V lists project activities by state and library; and Section VI is an analysis of fiscal year 1992 applications and grantees and provides statistics on the applications received and funded.
