UGL Receives IMLS Grant

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library will receive a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).  Librarians and staff of the Undergraduate Library will demonstrate a nontraditional approach to library services by working with students and taking a “bottom-up” collaborative design approach for mobile applications that support academic library users. By focusing on student input into which software tools are most needed, the Library will gain new insights into working with undergraduate students and better understanding what they value in libraries, and experience in coordinating a user-driven software development program.
