The IMLS provides a variety of grant programs to assist the nation’s museums and libraries in improving their operations and enhancing their services to the public. Museums and libraries of all sizes and types may receive support from IMLS programs.

The E-Government Act of 2002 called for the promotion of access to the Internet to provide increased opportunities for citizen participation in government, and an interagency committee issued a report looking at disparities in Internet access across a demographic spectrum. Few studies, however, have looked at the kinds of assistance (training, tutorials, classes, reference services) that users are receiving when looking for federal, state, and local government information and services, whether via the Internet or through traditional means (walk-in, mail, telephone), and whether users are satisfied with the assistance that they are receiving from public libraries and public access computing centers. In order to address this critical information gap and to enhance the quality of library services nationwide, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has undertaken a study to better understand how users are accessing federal, state, and local government information and services and what kinds of assistance public libraries and other public access computing centers are offering to users seeking government information and services. IMLS is conducting a research study on how the part of the population with limited access to Internet resources (individuals who do not have broadband access from home, work, or school; who choose to access government services and information from locations other than home, work, or school; or who do so through traditional means of access) accesses federal, state and local government services and information, and whether such users are satisfied with the information and services they are able to access. Additionally, the study examines the ways that public libraries and public access computing centers provide assistance (e.g., reference services, tutorials, classes, training to users seeking federal, state, and local government information and services.

Federal grant-making agency authorized by the Museum and Library 
Services Act, Public Law 104-208, as amended. The IMLS provides a 
variety of grant programs to assist the nation's museums and libraries 
in improving their operations and enhancing their services to the 
public. Museums and libraries of all sizes and types may receive 
support from IMLS programs. Public Law 104-208 authorizes the Director 
of the Institute of Museum and Library Services to carry out and

disseminate information on the best practices of such programs.
    The E-Government Act of 2002 called for the promotion of access to 
the Internet to provide increased opportunities for citizen 
participation in government, and an interagency committee issued a 
report looking at disparities in Internet access across a demographic 
spectrum. Few studies, however, have looked at the kinds of assistance 
(training, tutorials, classes, reference services) that users are 
receiving when looking for federal, state, and local government 
information and services, whether via the Internet or through 
traditional means (walk-in, mail, telephone), and whether users are 
satisfied with the assistance that they are receiving from public 
libraries and public access computing centers. In order to address this 
critical information gap and to enhance the quality of library services 
nationwide, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has 
undertaken a study to better understand how users are accessing 
federal, state, and local government information and services and what 
kinds of assistance public libraries and other public access computing 
centers are offering to users seeking government information and

and services they are able to access. Additionally, the study examines
