MLS Focus: Engaging Communities report available

Prepared by OCLC Research, IMLS Focus: Engaging Communities summarizes the June 2015 IMLS forum that focused on surfacing strategies for the field and emphasizing agency priorities, including helping underserved communities, fostering civic engagement, and making libraries accessible to all. The report offers insight into how libraries and their partners can develop community-driven projects and concludes with three takeaway questions for participants:

  • What are your strategies for assessing and responding to needs?
  • How do you cultivate and strengthen partnerships?
  • How can local projects and programs inform the rest of the profession?

See the IMLS blog post, A Focus on Libraries Engaging Communities, for more information and read the report in pdf format online.


The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is the primary source of federal support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 35,000 museums. Its mission is to inspire libraries and museums to advance innovation, lifelong learning, and cultural and civic engagement. Its grant making, policy development, and research help libraries and museums deliver valuable services that make it possible for communities and individuals to thrive.

This is the third and final report that IMLS commissioned OCLC Research to write to summarize IMLS Focus events in order to draw on its unique position within the field and its capacity to distill thoughts shared at the meeting and summarize outcomes and recommendations. The two earlier reports were IMLS Focus: The National Digital Platform and IMLS Focus: Learning in Libraries.
