This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services has prepared a report regarding two funding categories for its National Leadership Grant for Libraries: education and training, and research and demonstration. The full text of the report can be found on the IMLS web site at http://www.imls.gov/grants/library/lib_nlgl.asp#adv or received by contacting the Institute at the address below.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services' National Leadership Grants for libraries are designed to support leading edge activities in the field of library and information science. In 1999, IMLS awarded over $10 million in awards for model projects in education and training, research and demonstration and the preservation and archiving of digital media. These grants also help to build digital library resources and to promote cooperation between libraries and museums. The Institute is the only federal agency that administers grants specifically targeted for libraries, library education and library research.
IMLS places a high priority on developing ongoing and open communication with the constituents it serves. Dialogue is essential to assuring that policy and grant making procedures are developed in concert with the needs of the library community. To further this dialogue IMLS held a series of meetings in 1999 in Washington, DC, with library leaders to exchange ideas about priorities for the education and training, and research and development grant categories of National Leadership Grants. The meetings were designed to promote discussion among library leaders to help ensure that funding priorities address current problems and provide leadership for future needs.
IMLS is an independent Federal grantmaking agency that fosters leadership, innovation, and a lifetime of learning by supporting the nation's 8,000 museums and 122,000 libraries. Created by the Museum and Library Services Act of 1996, P.L. 104-208, IMLS has an annual budget of $190 million.
