The Nevada Statewide Database Project began as a demonstration program in 1999. The idea: provide access to high quality, reliable information to all residents of Nevada, anytime, anywhere. It proved so successful that it was launched as a full venture in 2001 with support from the State Legislature and a focus on K12 resources. Currently, Statewide databases are provided through funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
All Database contracts expire on June 30, 2023. NSLAPR and the Nevada Purchasing Division are in the process of awarding new contracts.
