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.
Fifteen academic institutions in Long Island region currently receive funding annually from the New York State CCDA program. These participating libraries collect materials in multiple formats in the following subject areas:

These state guidelines have been developed by the Program Administrator for the Coordinated
Collection Development Program at the State Library with the assistance of the New York
Reference and Research Resources Councils who administer the program at the local level. The
purpose of this program is to enhance academic library collections thereby strengthening
regional collections that are available via resource sharing.
Commissioner's Regulation ß90.15 (d) states that grant funds shall be expended for library
materials only; therefore:
Commissioner's Regulation §90.15 (e) Maintenance of Effort states…amount expended for library materials; therefore electronic access to a database from which library material, e.g. a journal article, journal citation, or other information sources that may be retrieved and shared, can be included as part of the total library materials expenditures in order to demonstrate maintenance of collection-building efforts from year-to-year.
