Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC)
Grants and learning opportunities of up to $11,000 to Texas accredited public libraries serving populations of less than 30,000 to participate in a staff technology training program. Funding is intended to support the implementation of a project after participation in online and in-person training.
The goal of the program is to provide an in-depth learning opportunity for small and rural library staff to acquire, develop and implement the skills and tools needed to manage library technology strategically. Selected applicants will attend an in-person training in Austin, Texas, and then continue their learning via an eight-week online course. This grant will provide funding for the equipment and training necessary for each library to:
Travel to an in-person training in Austin, Texas.
Purchase materials and services to implement a project informed by library management strategies and best practices as outlined in the Library Technology Academy training. TSLAC will work in collaboration with selected libraries to approve projects proposed. This project-based training grant will use both online and in-person learning experiences to enable library staff more time, guidance, and individualized attention to support technology planning and management. Each library will build on what they’ve learned through the training by designing and implementing a technology project supported by a reimbursement grant.
The grant and training will be in three parts:
Part One: Training
Part Two: Project Development
Part Three: Project Implementation
