This unit administers the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant money which provides a competitive grant process open to all public, school and academic libraries in the state along with many special libraries. It also distributes funds for the State Grants to Libraries which is open to all eligible school, public, and academic libraries to fund materials. Institutional Library Development operates within this unit and provides support library services for state-operated residential institutions, including youth and adult correctional facilities, mental health institutes, a school for the deaf and the blind, and veterans homes.
