Discusses Section 11 of the Local Government Act 1966. Notes that local authorities appear slow to make use of this subsidy or Ethnic Minority Grant in librarianship. Considers the 1988 Government review which recommended a project approach to applications and set out criteria covering areas of work which would qualify for funding. Concludes that the way ahead is to absorb all Section 11 posts and fund them mainstream, thus showing commitment to equality of service provision and opportunity.
