Libraries 2000: Allocation Plan for FY1997 LSCA Funds, Library Services and Construction Act. An Annual Outline and Description of Projects in Idaho Eligible under LSCA Titles I, II, and III.
Idaho State Library, Boise.
The Idaho allocation plan for funds from the Library Service and Construction Act (LSCA) continues the emphasis on priorities described in the statewide plan for years 1994-1998. These priorities are: (1) advocate for the creation of library districts with adequate tax support to serve the state's entire population; (2) strengthen cooperation and resource sharing between libraries, exploiting available and developing technological assets in a coordinated, collaborative fashion; and (3) expand continuing education programs for library staff and their governing boards. Six competitive projects and nine Idaho State Library (ISL)-administered projects fall under both Title I, Public Library Services, and Title III, Interlibrary Cooperation and Resource Sharing. A final project for public library construction is listed under Title II. Seven appendices list general and specific requirements for projects, the fiscal year grant cycle timeline, and eligibility requirements for LCSA. (SWC)
