WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) today announced that Florida State University’s (FSU) College of Information will receive a $559,872 grant to support and enhance programs related to preparing students for a career in library science. The grant is being made available by the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.

"With the Internet and other technological advancements, the field of library science is changing rapidly. The study and pursuit of this field is important to the enhancement of our communities, as well as the preservation of knowledge,” said Martinez. "I am pleased that FSU's College of Information is receiving this grant to further these specialized and important careers.”

With this grant, FSU's College of Information will partner with Broward County Library, Miami-Dade Public Library, Southeast Florida Library Information Network, and the State Library and Archives of Florida to provide a master's scholarship program for the next generation of librarians and managers who will work in under served populations in Southeast Florida public libraries.
