Introduced by Sens. DeFRANCISCO, GRIFFO, LARKIN, MARTINS, RANZENHOFER --
  read  twice  and  ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to
  the Committee on Education

AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to authorizing the  state
  library  to  coordinate  the purchase of electronic databases or other
  information resources for state agencies, libraries and other  govern-
  mental entities

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "New  York state comprehensive information system (NYSCIS) act".
  S  2.  Legislative  findings.  State agencies and the libraries of New
York individually license and purchase electronic  databases  and  other
information  resources.  Access  to information is not only vital to the
functioning of our democracy, but also to creating an environment condu-
cive to learning, research  and  innovation.  The  coordination  of  the
selection  and  purchase  of  these resources by the state library would
result in greater efficiencies and  cost  savings  for  the  public  and
foster improved access to information across the state. Therefore, it is
in  the  best interests of the state and its libraries to enact the "New
York state comprehensive information system (NYSCIS) act".
  S 3. The education law is amended by adding a new section 286 to  read
as follows:
  S  286.  NEW YORK STATE COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION SYSTEM.  1. GENERAL.
THERE IS HEREBY ESTABLISHED THE NEW YORK STATE COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION
SYSTEM (NYSCIS) TO BE ADMINISTERED BY THE  STATE  LIBRARY  TO  ENABLE  A
COLLABORATIVE  AND  COST  EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO THE PROCUREMENT OF ELEC-
TRONIC DATABASE AND OTHER INFORMATION RESOURCES.
  2. PARTICIPANTS. ENTITIES PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN NYSCIS ARE STATE
AGENCIES, LIBRARY SYSTEMS AND THEIR MEMBER  LIBRARIES,  AUTHORITIES  AND

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