IMLS Overhauls Its Language Access Plan

IMLS updated its federal agency language access plan, “Institute of Museum and Library Services’ Plan for Enduring Access for Persons With Limited English Proficiency.” It “features the establishment of an internal IMLS Language Access Working Group and a system for IMLS employees to record interactions and assistance offered to constituents with limited English proficiency.” IMLS aims to “further reduc[e] or eliminat[e] limited English proficiency as a barrier to accessing the IMLS’s programs and activities.”

This new plan stems from the November 2022 memorandum to federal agencies from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland asking the “agencies to revise their language access plans, share best practices and exchange information about language access initiatives and efforts in compliance with Executive Order 13166, ‘Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency.’”

For more information, read the press release.
