We need your feedback on our programs!

Every five years the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) conducts an evaluation of its implementation of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) “Grants to States” program in fulfillment of the requirements of the Museums and Libraries Act.

The LSTA Grants to States Program is a federal program that provides funding to each state on a population-driven formula. Federal funding for the program in Texas is approximately $10 million per year.  Decisions regarding how available funds are spent are made at the state level; however, expenditures must be consistent with the purposes and priorities that are established nationally.

Many popular programs such as the TexShare databases/card program, the competitive grant programs, statewide Interlibrary loan and Continuing Education and Consulting are either partially or fully funded with LSTA dollars.

The link below will take you to a short survey to gather information regarding the impact these programs have had on individuals and libraries in Texas.

Your opinions and ideas are very important to us.  We realize your time is valuable and your participation is entirely voluntary.  The survey will take approximately 5 – 8 minutes to complete.

Your responses will remain anonymous and will go directly to the evaluators, Himmel & Wilson, Library Consultants.

Please consider taking a few minutes out of your busy day to assist us with this important evaluation.  We would appreciate it if you could complete the survey no later than November 18, 2016.

If you have any questions or comments about the survey, please contact Bill Wilson at

Thank you for your participation!
