The Institute of Museum and Library Services has announced that CTG is a recipient of a federal grant that
will fund a project,
led by CTG's Associate Research Director Mila Gascó, to create new understanding of public libraries as community catalysts that can enable more collaborative engagement between local government, citizens, and other stakeholders in smart city initiatives.
"We are delighted to announce today's grant recipients whose projects are designed to have lasting benefits for the library and archives fields," said IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew. "These grants highlight how IMLS helps steer the nation's investments in libraries and ensure that librarians are equipped to provide citizens access to the information, resources, and services they want and need."
