In recent years state libraries looked deeply at user needs and trends in library services, through Five-Year Evaluations and Plans submitted to the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Now that the 2018-22 plans for spending LSTA funds are underway, chief officers from the states will discuss the needs they anticipated, as well as emerging trends they might be seeing. IMLS will also share trends from its vantage point as a national funder. To convey how broad plans translate into specific projects, the session will cover tools to search across the more than 1,500 library projects that IMLS funds annually.
