  • Invest in Workforce Development Opportunities. … Funding for the 21st Century Museum Professional Program (21MP) provides an opportunity for IMLS to make targeted investments to develop and enhance the diverse workforce of museum professionals in order to best anticipate and serve the needs of their local communities and the public and to help the field recover from the impact of the pandemic. …
  • Support State Library Administrative Agencies to Prioritize Local Programs. The Grants to States program is the largest source of federal funding support for library services in the United States.

  • Launch the Inaugural National Museum Survey. … In FY 2023, IMLS completed a pilot survey to support the development of a national survey of the nation’s museums to serve as part of the federal statistical system. The Agency plans to launch the Federal Government’s first statistically valid annual National Museum Survey data collection in FY 2025. …
  • Promote Information Literacy. IMLS has been tasked with establishing an Information Literacy Taskforce and creating an online portal (website) to disseminate best practices on information literacy and toolkits. …
