BILL NUMBER:S3390

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to aid for coordinated
collection development grants for public and non-profit independent
colleges and universities

PURPOSE:
This bill supports regional library resource sharing by
modernizing the coordinated collection development aid (CCDA) formula
in order to maintain the goals of quality and accessible scholarship
among academic and research libraries and the public.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill amends Subdivision 5 of section 273
the education law. Section 1 updates the legislative findings
pursuant to subdivision 5 indicating the intent to modernize the
coordinated collection development aid formula. Section 2 amends
subdivision (5) (b) (I) by itemizing the grant amount for each
institution in the following manner; five thousand five hundred
dollars in fiscal year 2010-2011, six thousand eight hundred seventy-
five in fiscal year 2011-2012, eight thousand six hundred in fiscal
year 2012-2013, ten thousand in fiscal year 2110-2014. Subdivision
(5) (b) (2) is amended to award, to each institution, an additional
one dollar and four cents for each full-time equivalent student
enrolled in the academic year prior to state fiscal year 2011 and
thereafter setting the rate at the level of the previous fiscal year
indexed to any positive growth in the Consumer Price Index as set by
the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. Section 3 provides the
effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
New York State Education Law establishes that public
and private colleges and universities libraries receive state aid for
the development of library collections. This program, known as
coordinated collection development (CCD) is intended to promote the
availability of critical information resources by supporting
regionally coordinated collections that would be available through
interlibrary loan. By helping academic libraries to build their
collections in specific subject areas through annual grants. New York
State ensures that the people of State have access to more and richer
resources. Under a CCD program, regional clusters of higher education
institutions would be spared the cost of individual purchases
of select titles so long as one of the other collaborating
institutions obtained that title. Coordinated reciprocity ensures the
availability of titles. The State provides aid to these libraries for
the
purpose of improving access to resources in a coordinated manner.
However, the formula directing state aid to public and private
academic and research libraries has not been adjusted since 1954.
During that time, prices of published academic materials has outpaced
inflation, often rising at a rate of more than three times that of
inflation. In 2009, total statewide funding for CCD did not reach $2
million for the more than 200 participating institutions. This
program Deeds an adjustment in its formula if the goals of quality


and accessible scholarship are to be maintained. This program
provides $1.04 for each full-time equivalent student and
proportionate amounts for part-time or graduate students. By modestly
revising the CCD funding formula to $1.50 per FTE with future
increases indexed to changes in the consumer price index (CPI), New
York State could ensure the viability of this withering program.
Updating the CCD formula is needed to maintain the competitive
advantages of New York's higher education sector. It also promotes a
model of efficiency needed to combat the exponentially rising costs
of books and other information resources.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill in Senate. In Assembly A.10084 in
Higher Education (2009-2010).

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Each institution will receive five thousand
five hundred dollars in fiscal year 2010-2011, six thousand eight
hundred seventy-five in fiscal year 2011- 2012, eight thousand six
hundred in fiscal year 2012-2013, and ten thousand in fiscal year
2110-2014.
Additionally, one dollar and four cents will be granted to each
institution for each full-time equivalent student enrolled in the
academic year prior to state fiscal year 2011 and thereafter setting
the rate at the level of the previous fiscal year indexed to any
positive Growth in the Consumer Price Index as set by the United
States Bureau of Labor Statistics.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.

AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to  aid  for  coordinated
  collection  development  grants  for public and non-profit independent
  colleges and universities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings. The formula directing state aid to
public and private academic and research libraries has not been adjusted
since 1984. During that time prices of published academic materials have
outpaced inflation, often rising at a rate of more than three times that
of inflation. The state provides aid to these libraries for the  purpose
of  improving access and resources in a coordinated manner. This program
needs an adjustment in its formula if the goals of quality and  accessi-
ble  scholarship  are  to  be  maintained.  Therefore, it is in the best
interests of the state, its citizens and long-term academic and economic
prospects to support modernization of the coordinated collection  devel-
opment aid (CCDA) formula.
  S  2. Subdivision 5 of section 273 of the education law, as amended by
section 3 of part O of chapter 57 of the laws of  2005,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  5. Coordinated collection development program for public and nonprofit
independent colleges and universities.
  a.  Libraries of public and nonprofit independent colleges and univer-
sities  are  entitled  to  receive  annual  funding  for  a  coordinated
collection development grant if they meet the following conditions:
  (1) Membership in a reference and research library resources system,
  (2)  Their  resources  are  made available to the public, through full
participation in  the  interlibrary  loan  and  other  resource  sharing
programs of the reference and research library resources system of which
they are members, and

S. 3390                             2

  (3) They meet the requirements set forth in regulations adopted by the
commissioner including but not confined to
  (a) maintenance of effort,
  (b)  relationships  between  reference  and research library resources
systems' programs and the regional higher education master plan,
  (c) submission of interlibrary loan statistics, and such other reports
as may be required by the commissioner.
  b. Public and nonprofit independent  colleges  and  universities  with
libraries which meet the criteria of paragraph a of this subdivision are
eligible for annual grants as follows:
  (1)  [Four  thousand  four  hundred dollars for each institution] FIVE
THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR EACH INSTITUTION IN  FISCAL  YEAR  TWO
THOUSAND  ELEVEN--TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, SIX THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED SEVEN-
TY-FIVE DOLLARS  FOR  EACH  INSTITUTION  IN  FISCAL  YEAR  TWO  THOUSAND
TWELVE--TWO  THOUSAND  THIRTEEN,  EIGHT THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR

FOURTEEN,  TEN  THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR EACH INSTITUTION IN FISCAL YEAR TWO
THOUSAND FOURTEEN--TWO THOUSAND FIFTEEN, and
  (2) One dollar and four cents for each  full-time  equivalent  student
enrolled  in each qualifying institution, in the academic year completed
prior to [the] state  fiscal  year  TWO  THOUSAND  ELEVEN--TWO  THOUSAND
TWELVE.    THEREAFTER THE RATE SHALL BE SET AT THE LEVEL OF THE PREVIOUS
FISCAL YEAR INDEXED TO ANY POSITIVE GROWTH IN THE CONSUMER  PRICE  INDEX

this section, a full-time equivalent shall be calculated as follows:
  (i) one full-time undergraduate student shall be considered one  full-
time equivalent student;
  (ii) one part-time undergraduate student shall be considered one-third
of a full-time equivalent student;
  (iii) one part-time graduate student shall be considered one full-time
equivalent student; and
  (iv)  one  full-time graduate student shall be considered one and one-
