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


  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
