IMLS Guidance

IMLS has prepared a series of guidance memos  on how to administer and report on the use of LSTA funds. 

Publicity

Special Events-Invite the State Librarian

If awarded an LSTA grant, the Nevada State Library staff would like to help you celebrate your successes! If you host an open house, launch party, or special event, consider inviting the State Librarian and/or the Deputy State Librarian. Contact Sulin Jones for arrangements.

Special Events-IMLS

Send timely press releases to the LSTA coordinator for forwarding to IMLS. They can often help promote at the national level.

Social Media

Also, remember to capture social media content to include with final reports.
