AN  ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to establish-
  ing the academic research information access act

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

  Section  1.  Legislative findings. The public and private academic and
research libraries of New York individually license research and  devel-
opment  information  resources,  access to which is vitally important to
the furtherance of an innovation-based economy.  The  primary  obstacles
limiting  access  to these information resources both at institutions of
higher education, and within the entrepreneurial community, are the high
cost of licensing agreements  and  restrictive  contracts  that  inhibit
collaboration.  New companies and emerging industries will be encouraged
to locate their business in New York state adding to state revenues that
are derived by the existence of such private and public sector commerce.
Therefore, it is in the best interests of the economic  development  and
higher  education interests of this state to enact the academic research
information access act.
  S 2. Short title. This act shall be known and  may  be  cited  as  the
"academic research information access act".
  S  3. Section 100 of the economic development law is amended by adding
two new subdivisions 32-a and 32-b to read as follows:
  32-A. TO PROMOTE EFFICIENT UTILIZATION  OF  STATE  RESOURCES  FOR  THE
PROCUREMENT  OF  INFORMATION,  DATA AND CONTENT RESOURCES, FOR ACADEMIC,
RESEARCH AND COMMERCIAL INSTITUTIONS.
  32-B. TO SECURE AGREEMENTS WITH PUBLIC, NOT-FOR-PROFIT AND  FOR-PROFIT
CORPORATIONS  TO  PROVIDE  FOR THE PRODUCTIVE USE OF THE STATE RESOURCES
NEEDED TO ENHANCE TEACHING, LEARNING AND RESEARCH.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
