IMLS Seeks Cooperator to Improve Museum and Library Services

IMLS Invites Proposals for a Cooperative Agreement to Help Museums
and Libraries Plan, Evaluate, and Share Outstanding Programs

Deadline for Applications: March 3, 2008

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invites
proposals for a cooperative agreement to increase the capacity of
museum and library grantees to design and deliver programs that
preserve cultural heritage, enhance learning opportunities,
encourage innovation, and support the professional development of
library and museum workers. The cooperative agreement will improve
the museum and library fields' sharing of best practices and the
Institute's ability to access and analyze IMLS project results and
communicate their impact to the field, Congress, the Administration,
and the general public.

The application deadline is March 3, 2008, and the cooperative
agreement will be awarded April, 2008. The grant award of up to $1
million will be active for 24 months beginning April, 2008.

The cooperator will work with IMLS to improve and expand the sharing
of project design, evaluation, deliverables, practices, and findings
among grantees, future grantees, and the general library and museum
community. It will also enable others in the museum and library
fields to learn from and build upon IMLS grantees' prior work and
share practices and findings based on project evaluations and other
methods. The cooperative agreement will also result in the smooth
application of research findings to real-world library and museum

The cooperator will be responsible for developing: a suite of
products that can be used by grantees to plan, capture, and share
project results, a Web-based clearinghouse that will provide access
to IMLS-supported projects and lessons learned, and meetings on
crosscutting content such as professional development, research, and
youth and family learning.
