Resource Sharing Grants

Public and Academic Libraries:

This week we mailed letters to public and academic libraries regarding the Resource Sharing Grants for Federal FY11. Financial awards are available to public and academic libraries that received requests from other libraries for interlibrary loan via the Vermont Automated Library System (VALS) between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. The grant award amounts are based on the number of requests received.  In order to receive grants, libraries must have met Minimum Standards for Vermont Public Libraries as of December 31, 2010.

I am asking that you complete, sign and return the Report Form for FFY2010 Resource Sharing Grants and the signed Agreement Form NO LATER THAN JUNE 7, 2011. Returning the forms after that date could jeopardize your grant award.

If you have questions about this, please contact Renee Ancel, my executive Assistant at: 828-3266 /

Thanks for your prompt response!
