Ten RRLC institutions currently receive approximately $100,000 annually in New York State Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA), which is administered on behalf of the New York State Library by the NY3Rs Councils. The CCDA program promotes regional coordination of collection development in academic libraries by providing annual grants based on enrollment to public and not-for-profit colleges, universities, and community colleges that meet certain conditions. These conditions include constitutional eligibility to receive State aid, membership in a reference and research library resources system, and full participation in interlibrary loan and other resource sharing programs.
RRLC academic libraries have developed a CCD plan for the region, designating subject area responsibilities for each library. RRLC assists member academic libraries in completing the online application, collects ILL statistics annually, and periodically asks each library to verify its collection areas/strengths.
