The Institute of Museum and Library Services, more commonly referred to as IMLS, is an independent agency of the United States government that was primarily established in an effort support all of the country's eligible museums and libraries.

The attempts of the IMLS are carefully guided by its mission, which is to "create strong libraries and museums that connect people with information and ideas."

b) The development of an efficient and reliable emergency plan

c) The assignment of duties and responsibilities for collections care
