The Law Library has been awarded a 2013 – 2014 LSTA EZ Planning grant from the State Library of North Carolina. The Library Services and Technology Act (“LSTA”) is an Act implemented to provide federal funds for the improvement of public and academic library services nationwide. Grant funds are made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and are distributed by the State Library of North Carolina. LSTA grants are competitive, and libraries must submit a detailed application that articulates how LSTA funds will improve patron services in order to receive an award.
The NCCU Law Library will use its grant award on hiring a library consultant who will draft a comprehensive technology plan best tailored to meet the library needs of faculty, students, and public patrons. This program is supported by grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
