Five types of operations are covered by the special assistance for libraries: construction/development, computerization, digitisation, implementation of operational means and, since 2016, personnel expenses related to an extension or a change of schedules.
The credits of the particular competition are delegated, each year, by the Ministry of the Interior to the Prefecture of Region. The DRAC (book and reading consultant with, where appropriate, the support of the consultant architect attached to the Book and Reading Department of the Ministry of Culture) brings its scientific and technical expertise to the project and ensures the administrative and financial management of the files. The accounting commitment is ensured by the Regional Prefecture.
