LOUIS Funding Increase Saves Databases

07/05/11 Jean Badeau


Funding by the Board of Regents for LOUIS, the Lousiana Library Network, was increased. This allows all the LOUIS-funded databases to remain available for the new academic year.


Thanks in partto a huge grassroots effort to get the word out about LOUIS, the Louisiana Legislature passed HCR 129, which requests that Board of Regents develop a permanent funding formula for LOUIS and support LOUIS as a critical component of the success of public postsecondary education institutions. The Board of Regents has committed to funding LOUIS for$1 million this fiscal year.

 

LOUIS andSims Library would like to thank everyone who contacted the Board of Regents and their statelegislators. We also want to thank the Faculty Senate who passed a resolution supporting LOUIS.
