S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 3688 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E February 11, 2013 ___________ Introduced by Sen. FARLEY -- 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 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 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
