LSTA Spanish-Language Materials Grant

In the Fall of 2004, the Illinois State Library awarded $8000, divided equally, to the libraries at the College of DuPage and Morton College. The purpose of this grant was to improve the quantity, quality and variety of Spanish-language materials that support academic courses at the two institutions, as well as the interests of the general public. The funds came from the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) "Weed and Feed" grant. This web site provides information about the grant, the participating institutions, the materials purchased, and links to relevant Internet sites. If you have problems or questions, be sure to ask for help at the Library Reference Desk (call 630 - 942 - 3364, or E-mail us).
