Library Literacy Program. Description of Funded Projects, 1990. Title VI, Library Services and Construction Act.
Humes, Barbara; Lyons, Carol Cameron
This booklet provides a description of each of the 237 adult literacy projects funded in fiscal year 1990 by the Library Literacy Program, Title VI of the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA). The projects are keyed to a list of over 90 literacy activities that could be offered by libraries, thus showing the scope of each project and enabling the reader to identify the libraries working in specific areas of interest. The first of three parts of this report provides an exhaustive list of literacy activities culled from all of the projects, including activities related to: students and tutors, training, literacy resources, literacy materials, specialized instruction, technology, targeted populations, coalition building and interagency cooperation, public awareness, evaluation, general services, and dissemination. Each of the activities listed is assigned a code. The second part of the booklet lists each of the projects alphabetically by state, and provides the name of the library, its location, the director's name, the amount of the grant, and the relevant activity codes. The analysis of fiscal year 1990 applications and grants presented in the third part provides statistics on the applications received and funded. (MAB)
