The Institute of Museum and Library Services has released grant program guidelines for its 2011 National Leadership Grant program.
Here's an excerpt:
Applications for Project or Collaborative Planning Grants may be submitted in the following categories:
- Advancing Digital Resources: Support the creation, use, presentation, and preservation of significant digital resources as well as the development of tools to enhance access, use, and management of digital assets.
- Research: Support projects that have the potential to improve museum, archival, and library practice, resource use, programs, and services. Both basic and applied research projects are encouraged.
- Demonstration: Support projects that produce a replicable model or practice that is usable by other institutions for improving services and performance.
- Library-Museum Collaboration Grants: Support collaborative projects that address the educational, economic, cultural, and social needs of a community.
