Federal Programs for Libraries: A Directory.
Leonard, Lawrence E., Comp.; Erteschik, Ann M., Comp.
This directory provides information on nine Federal library programs and 72 Federal library-related programs, as well as a bibliography of publications on the grants application process. While it provides a guide to funding sources, it is intended only to lead libraries to possible funding sources rather than serving as a complete information source. Of the four main sections, the first contains an annotated listing of 20 existing directories and other current publications relevant to library-related funding sources. The next lists nine Federal programs that provide direct support for library projects. Programs are arranged alphabetically by the name of the authorizing Act, and program descriptions include authorizing legislation, program purpose, fund uses, applicant eligibility requirements, grant type, level of funding, grant range, average grant, application/program source, and application closing date when available. The 72 library-related Federal programs listed in the next section are arranged alphabetically by program title, and include program descriptions providing the same information as the Federal program listings. A selected bibliography of publications on grantsmanship follows. Indexes by applicant eligibility, authorization, Federal agency, and subject area are also included, followed by a directory of state library agencies in the United States. (Author/MBR)
