Through its Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA) program, New York State financially recognizes the contributions academic libraries make to state and regional resource sharing. By helping academic libraries to build their collections in specific subject areas through annual grants, New York State ensures the people of the state have access to more and richer resources.
While the State funds are paid directly to member libraries, LILRC staff act as liaison between the libraries and the State, handle the paperwork, and assist each library with the complicated application process.
