ARL and IMLS Speak Out Against Federal Budget Proposal for FY2021

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) issued a statement opposing the FY2021 budget cuts to federal library programs and the defunding of IMLS proposed by the current administration. It says, in part, “IMLS provides grants to research libraries that are pivotal in recruiting and educating the next generation of librarians, faculty, and library leaders. This is more urgent than ever given the central role of research libraries at a time of exponential change in scholarship and learning powered by data, machine learning, and other emerging technologies, and given dramatically changing demographics of student and faculty populations at higher education institutions.”

IMLS’ statement says, in part, “As the primary source of federal funding for museums and libraries, IMLS invests in communities of all sizes, from rural to urban, in every U.S. state and territory. IMLS ensures public library services for all Americans, helps preserve the heritage of our nation, and provides critical funding for literacy and workforce development programs.”

For more information, read the ARL statement and the IMLS statement.
