Library Literacy Program. Analysis of Funded Projects, 1993. 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 1993. The variety of literacy activities supported under the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI reflects the diversity of literacy needs in states and communities across the United States. Many factors influence a library's choice of activities for a literacy project: demographics of the target population; economic base of the community; availability of literacy services; nature of existing literacy or adult education services; and availability of human and material literacy resources. Section I discusses major developments taking place among the LSCA Title VI projects and includes selected examples; Section II is a summary of the 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 the projects; Section V lists project activities, alphabetically by state and library; and Section VI is a statistical analysis of fiscal year 1993 applications and grantees.
