USVI Library/Community Collaboration

Community Collaboration

The UVI Libraries and its community partners have been selected to receive a FY2021 National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  In 2021, IMLS received 172 applications requesting over $47,000,000.  Of these, they selected 39 projects to receive funding.  The USVI Library/Community Collaboration: Training & Technology Innovations has been awarded over $240,000 in funding.   

The USVI Library/Community Collaboration: Training & Technology Innovations will focus on developing technology skills for telehealth and information-seeking skills through partnerships with community organizations.  UVI librarians will develop training materials while helpdesk technicians will support technology needs for our partners and their members.
