Making a Difference @ your library®
Nebraska Library Commission
April 30, 2002

This report is the result of a comprehensive statewide evaluation project conducted by the Nebraska Library Commission. The primary objective of the project was to provide the Institute for Library and Museum Services (IMLS) with an in-depth analysis of the impact of federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding on Nebraska's libraries and communities. A secondary objective was to collect consistent, specific information from all of Nebraska's public libraries about their successes, challenges, and dreams for providing library and information services, in order for the Library Commission to provide responsive, appropriate services and programs in the future.

The report is made available here in Adobe PDF format.  You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to read these files.
