Federal Aid to Libraries: The Library Services and Technology Act

Description:

This report discusses the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), which consolidated and
replaced the former Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) and other federal
library assistance legislation. LSTA grants to the states are allocated to state library
administrative agencies (SLAAs), and may be used for two basic purposes:
developing and improving electronic or other linkages and networks
connecting providers and consumers of library services and resources;
and/or targeting library services to under served or disadvantaged
populations, such as persons with disabilities, those with limited
literacy skills, or children from poor families.
