Through the Utah Public Library Institute for Training (UPLIFT), the Utah State Library offers a variety of training opportunities to individuals, libraries, and library organizations. Training includes basic training for non-MLS library staff, advanced training for the full library community, and training for library trustees, through special institutes, mini-workshops, teleconferences, grants to individuals and grants to library organizations. The future of these continuing education grants depends on federal funding, demand, and assessed impact.
The Utah State Library funds two grants: Organization Resource Grant and Professional Excellence Grant. Recipients are required to acknowledge the Utah State Library when undertaking and promoting grant supported activities.
Application deadlines are January 15th, May 15th, August 15th, and September 15th of each year.
