IMLS Open Data Portal

IMLS Open Data Portal, On-going Resources

The IMLS Open Data Portal hosts a wide array of administrative and statistical data holdings gathered by the agency. The portal includes IMLS grant recipients from 1996 to 2013; three successive waves of the U.S. Museum universe Data File; a database of IMLS Freedom of Information Requests and 20 years of survey data from the Public Library Survey of the United States. Offering more than the data alone, the site lets users build original reports and visualizations of the data, and it enables web developers and/or "hackers" to grab APIs of these datasets for the purpose of styling new apps. The IMLS data portal can be found at:
