Library Juice » Laura Bush appropriates title of IMLS grant for librarians

Says Rory Litwin at Library Juice:

Laura Bush appropriates title of IMLS grant for librarians

For years the IMLS has been offering grants for LIS research and the education of librarians not appreciably different the one announced today on the IMLS website, except that this year’s grant program (and last year’s?) is called the “Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Grant,” as though the grant were her idea or funded by her personal wealth. This is a shameful appropriation of the good will of the public toward librarians. How false, how fraudulent, and how desperate.
