The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office and National Video Resources (NVR) are accepting grant applications from libraries of all types that are interested in hosting The World War I Years: America Becomes a World Power, a new film viewing and discussion series. Support for the series is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Libraries interested in presenting the series can download the application and guidelines at www.ala.org/publicprograms or www.ww1films.com. Applications must be received by January 31, 2005.
The World War I Years is a six-part, scholar-led film viewing and discussion series that explores the political and social history of the United States in the early 20th century. Themes for the six programs in the series are: The Road to War, Over There: The Military History of the American Expeditionary Force, Modern War: The Experience of the Doughboys, The American People in Wartime, Peace Making: The League of Nations Experiment, and After the War: The Turbulent Years.
Fifty libraries will be selected to participate in The World War I Years project. Participating libraries will receive a collection of six carefully curated documentary films to use for the series and keep as part of their permanent collections; seven compelling essays on the film topics written by eminent scholars; an extensive resource guide for additional reading, videos, and Web sites; and program and publicity materials. Additionally, 25 of the selected libraries will be invited to send the program coordinator and scholar to a training seminar in Chicago. These libraries will also receive a $1,300 grant to use toward seminar travel and other expenses.
