Fact Book on Library Aid.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Library Development.
This booklet presents information about the financial support authorized for libraries and library systems in Chapter 917 of the "Laws of 1990" and advocated by the Regents of the State University of New York for the state's library systems. It is noted that, although Chapter 917 provides for modest increases in library aid each year for the years 1992-1993, the Regents have advocated legislative action in 1992 for the full appropriation and release of all library and library systems aid currently authorized in statute. Tables highlight the financial support requested by the Board of Regents for 1991/92 and 1992/93 under Chapter 917, as well as the amount that these requests were reduced in 1991/1992 for each library system. Tables display data on state support requested for public libraries and library systems; reference and research library resources systems; school library systems; coordinated collection development; medical/hospital library systems; regional database/automation systems; preservation/conservation; the New York Historical Society; and the New York State Library for the Blind and Visually Handicapped.
