The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has provided the New York State Library with $6.2 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds through the LSTA Grants to States Program. The State Library has allocated $5,514,315 of these federal funds to New York State’s nine regional Reference and Research Library Resources Councils for collaborative regional projects that will advance digital equity, encourage library/museum partnerships, and expand student access to digital resources.
Southeastern’s allocation will be for projects that address the three required project components:
- Expanding student access to digital resources through school library systems
- Strengthening library/museum partnerships
- Advancing digital inclusion in collaboration with public library systems and public libraries
