Fall 2015 issue of Trustee

While our librarians are very familiar with your local Reference and Research Library Resource council, many trustees may not be aware of this valuable resource.


In 1966, the New York State Legislature authorized the establishment of reference and research library resources systems (councils) in Education Law. The councils were created to expand the availability of the resources of academic, medical, law, business and special libraries to more New Yorkers and to enable libraries of all types to buy services and share resources cooperatively in order to strengthen programs and services.


The nine 3Rs in our State are:

·         Capital District Library Council

·         Central New York Library Resources Council

·         Long Island Library Resources Council

·         METRO - Metropolitan New York Library Council

·         Northern New York Library Network

·         Rochester Regional Library Council

·         South Central Regional Library Council

·         Southeastern New York Library Resources Council

Western New York Library Resources Council
