These proceedings are a summary of a working conference for New York State academic library directors sponsored by the Academic and Special Libraries Section of the New York Library Association (NYLA) and the New York Three R's Organization (NYTRO).

The proceedings provide lists of priorities that emerged from 10 working groups which addressed the questions of: (1) how to influence legislation for academic libraries; (2) how to enhance resources and/or services through regional initiatives; (3) how to enhance resources and/or services through state initiatives; (4) how to improve coordination among academic libraries; and (5) how to enhance cooperation among academic and other types of libraries. Appendices include a conference outline, summaries of speeches, copies of session materials, a list of conference registrants, details about a listserv for academic library directors, and notes from a meeting with State Librarian James Shubert.
