NASA and the Library

NASA has recently noticed that libraries are centers for information and learning and has begun to direct attention and money in that direction. The NASA Explorer Institutes (NEI) are part of that.
The Informal Education Division has initiated a new national level program called the NASA Explorer Institutes (NEI). NEI will provide, " only NASA can," engaging experiences, opportunities, materials, and information to members of the informal education community including, but not limited to, representatives of science centers, museums, planetariums, libraries, parks, aquaria, nature centers, botanical gardens, youth groups, and community-based organizations.
Emphasis added. Last year the Mountain Plains Library Association was the only library group involved.
