Ten RRLC academic library members receive New York State Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA) each year. CCDA is administered on behalf of the New York State Library by the Empire State Library Network Councils. The CCDA program promotes regional coordination of collection development in academic libraries by providing annual grants based on enrollment to public and nonprofit colleges and universities that meet certain conditions. These conditions include constitutional eligibility to receive State aid, membership in a reference and research library resources system (library council), and full participation in interlibrary loan and other resource sharing programs.
RRLC academic libraries have developed this coordinated collection development plan for the region, designating subject area responsibilities for each participating library. RRLC assists member academic libraries in completing the online application, collects ILL statistics annually, and asks each library to verify its collection areas/strengths annually.
