L.S.C.A. Library Services & Construction Act Report for 1994. Information Partners for the 21st Century.
Michigan Library, Lansing.
This annual report, consisting of 16 district summaries, demonstrates how federal Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) funds have supported a wide range of 1994 projects to improve services in Michigan libraries. Most often these projects involved getting connected to the Internet, making the library accessible to the handicapped, enlarging special outreach services, or implementing other new technologies like wide area networking, CD-ROM applications, or electronic document delivery aids. Each district summary is divided into Title I, Title II, and Title III projects. It lists individual libraries who received monies, along with amounts, and it gives a brief annotation as to the type of project pursued. Also provided are a roster of Michigan's Congressional delegation and a map of Congressional districts. Statewide summaries outline: Title I grants to regional and subregional libraries serving the blind and physically handicapped; Title I grants to major urban resource (public) libraries in cities of 100,000 or more; Title I discretionary grant money totals separated by type of project or desired improvement; all Title II monies used specifically for construction and renovation projects; and Title III monies given to "regions of cooperation," or voluntary library networks.
