LSTA grants are one of the many ways the State Library supports library services across Oregon through its federally funded Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Program, administered on the national level by the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Grants to States Program.
All successfully funded projects align with at least one of the following goals of Oregon's LSTA 5-Year Plan (2018-2022):
Goal #1: Provide access to library services, materials, and information resources
Goal #2: Use technology to increase capacity to provide access to library services, materials and information resources
Goal #3: Promote evidence-based practice in libraries
Goal #4: Develop information literacy skills
Goal #5: Foster lifelong learning
