State library agencies (StLAs) provide key leadership for library services planning and development in each state. Their structure and governance varies widely across states; StLAs are located in various departments in state government and they report to different authorities. This research brief gives an overview of the revenues, expenditures, and services provided by StLAs during fiscal year (FY) 2008. State library agencies are official agencies charged by state law with the extension and development of library services throughout the state; they have authority under state law to administer state plans in accordance with the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). The 2008 fiscal year includes parts of 2007 and 2008; for the vast majority of states (46), the 2008 fiscal year started on 7/1/2007 and ended on 6/30/2008. Because of the time period this survey spans, it does not reflect the full budgetary impact of the current economic downturn.(Contains 15 figures and 15 footnotes.)
