Who is eligible?
The Application Process
Applications are mailed in the spring, and libraries receive their funds in the following fall. First-time applicants must submit a "New Participant Form," which is available from METRO.The funds are allocated via a formula based on student enrollment levels and other criteria. Applicants must also meet certain eligibility guidelines related to annual budgets. METRO provides support to academic libraries for the application process, and reviews all applications and other forms before they are forwarded to the State. Funds are distributed directly to member libraries. Approximately $700,000 is awarded annually to area academic libraries.
