UT Receives Grant to Educate Librarians for the 21st Century

Scientific and technological research is crucial to the advancement and betterment of society; however there is a shortage of librarians trained to work specifically with scientists. Thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the University of Tennessee hopes to solve that problem with a new librarian training program called Science Links.

IMLS awarded the University of Tennessee a $632,249 grant as part of their Librarians for the 21st Century initiative, created to help recruit and educate the next generation of librarians.
