Regional Coordinated Collection Development Plan

About Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA):

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:

Guidelines for CCDA from New York State Library Medicine, Engineering, Business, Humanities, Chemistry and Physics, Division of Library Development:

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:

  1. Library materials can be purchased under the resource sharing program by an academic institution as long as it can be lent to or used by the patrons of members of the reference and research library resources systems.
  2. Periodicals, serials, and reference materials can be purchased as long as they can be lent to or used by patrons of members of the reference and research library resources systems; in other words, the materials need not circulate if they do not circulate to students or faculty in the home academic institution.
  3. Electronic database costs can be paid under the resource sharing program by an academic institution if the license permits on site use by patrons by members of the reference and research library resources systems.
  4. Fees providing access to materials acquired through document delivery cannot be included because the materials are not subsequently available for loan to others.
  5. Duplication of titles purchased with Coordinated Collection Development Program funds in different academic libraries is acceptable if the duplication meets regional collection development needs.
  6. All use of Coordinated Collection Development Program funds presumes that there is also an ongoing and substantial commitment of institutional funds to collection development, as required in the legislation for the Coordinated Collection Development Program.

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.
