State Library News & Announcements
IMLS Report on State Library Agencies
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) released its latest report on the State Library Administrative Agencies (SLAA). The survey found that over the past 12 years, SLAA revenues declined by over a fifth, while expenditures fell in parallel by 22 percent. Most of this decline occurred during the recession, December 2007 to June 2009. However, SLAAs funded by their state’s department of education had much higher revenues and expenditures in comparison to other libraries funded through other administrative structures.
