Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) in Arizona
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) supports libraries in Arizona through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) program, administered by the Arizona State Library.
LSTA funds are intended to help libraries develop central roles as community builders. LSTA funds are used to promote improvements in services to all types of libraries; to facilitate access to, and sharing of, resources; and to achieve economical and effective delivery of service for the purpose of cultivating an educated and informed citizenry. LSTA funds are targeted for statewide library services and support a wide array of programs from family literacy to providing broad access to sophisticated databases. This program develops the role of libraries as “information brokers,” helping to make resources and services, which are often prohibitively expensive, more readily available. LSTA also supports efforts to recruit and educate librarians.
In Arizona, LSTA funds are available as grants to individual libraries.
