Technological advancement in academic library resources sharing, networking, and information transfer have developed dramatically in the past decade, with institutions (including nonacademic libraries) finding themselves hard pressed to acquire the resources necessary to institute or otherwise improve their networking capabilities. Further, these new developments have posed new problems that need to be researched in depth and new alternatives that need to be tested. To assist in meeting these needs, Congress enacted the College Library Technology and Cooperation Grants Program under the Higher Education Amendments of 1986, authorizing the Secretary of Education to make four types of grants: (1) Networking Grants for institutions of higher education demonstrating a need for special assistance to participate in library networking for resource sharing; (2) Combination Grants for institutions of higher education in need of special assistance for joint use of libraries; (3) Services to Institutions Grants to assist nonacademic libraries in providing additional services to academia; and (4) Research and Demonstration Grants supporting projects that meet national or regional library needs in the utilization of technology. This collection of abstracts provides information on each of the 46 projects funded in 1988, including the name of the institution, the project director, the grant period, funding for fiscal year 1988, the grant number, and a brief description. Two appended tables present a statistical analysis of the 46 funded projects and a state breakdown of financial obligations. (SD)
