The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. This pre-clearance consultation program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. By this notice, IMLS is soliciting comments concerning a plan to offer a new grant initiative targeted to the needs of small libraries nationwide, aligned to the updated IMLS Strategic Framework for 2018- 2022. ``Accelerating Promising Practice for Small Libraries (APPS-L)'' would be a special initiative of the National Leadership Grants for Libraries Program.
