AGENCY: Institute of Museum and Library Services, National Foundation
for the Arts and the Humanities.
ACTION: Notice, request for comments, collection of information.
SUMMARY: The Institute of Museum and Library Service ("IMLS'') as part
of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden,
conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general
public and federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed
and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the
Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). This pre-clearance
consultation program helps to ensure that requested data can be
provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial
resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood,
and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be
properly assessed. The purpose of this Notice is to solicit comments
concerning the STEM Expert Facilitation of Family Learning in Libraries
and Museums (STEMeX)--A National Leadership Grants Special Initiative.
A copy of the proposed information collection request can be
obtained by contacting the individual listed below in the ADDRESSES
section of this notice.
DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the
ADDRESSES section below on or before July 25, 2016.
The IMLS is particularly interested in comments which:
Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
including whether the information will have practical utility;
Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and
Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
electronic submission of responses.
