About the IMLS Project

Original Project

Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS))
Financial support for this project was provided in part with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), which is an independent federal agency that fosters leadership, innovation and a lifetime of learning. IMLS supports all types of museums, from art and history to science and zoos, as well as all types of libraries and archives, from public and academic to research and school. IMLS expands the educational benefit of these institutions by encouraging partnerships. The 1998 IMLS National Leadership Grant, was for $138,346 (plus $45,700 in matching funds).
