CLRC facilitates the lending and borrowing of books, journal articles and media for member libraries in Onondaga, Madison, Oneida and Herkimer counties, thereby increasing accessibility to information for end-users. Member libraries do not charge each other for this exchange of materials.
CLRC provides interlibrary borrowing services at no charge to our member libraries and maintains a professional reference collection for loan. Visit LibraryThing for a list of available titles in the CLRC collection. Contact Anna Dobkowski to place a borrowing or lending request.
CLRC provides member libraries with the up-to-date information and training needed to effectively use their electronic resource sharing systems such as OCLC WorldShare, ILLiad, Tipasa, Alma, ReShare or DOCLINE.

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.
Sixteen CLRC academic instituions currently receive funding annually from the CCDA program, which is administered on behalf of the New York State Library by the ESLN Councils. Participating libraries collect materials in multiple formats.
The following subject areas will be collected by CLRC members in 2021-2022:
Guidelines for CCDA from New York State Library, 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 Empire State Library Network (ESLN) 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Fees providing access to materials acquired through document delivery cannot be included because the materials are not subsequently available for loan to others.
- Duplication of titles purchased with Coordinated Collection Development Program funds in different academic libraries is acceptable if the duplication meets regional collection development needs.
- 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 ß90.15 (e) Maintenance of Effort states…amount expended for library materials; therefore electronic access to a database from which library materials, e.g. a journal article, journal citation, or other information sources that may be retrieved, can be included as part of the total library materials expenditures in order to demonstrate maintenance of collection-building efforts from year-to-year.

The New York State Library provides funding through the Medical Information Services Program (MISP) for the provision of medical and consumer health information services for all types of libraries and library systems.
CLRC libraries and library systems may use the MISP funds for:
* Payment to the libraries of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), including the National Library of Medicine, for medical and health interlibrary loan services
* Deposits in the NN/LM electronic payment systems
* Payment to commercial document delivery suppliers as the last resort for the needed medical information
* Mediated medical database searches performed by a library or library system on behalf of another library for their patron’s information needs
* The licensing of and access to medical resources in electronic format
* Placement of interlibrary loan requests or referrals for medical information on behalf of regional libraries
* Locator tools for medical information or for the creation and maintenance of medical information locator tools in a region
* Reference referral services (virtual or other) for medical and health information needs
* Communication, promotion and training related to this program
You may request reimbursement by:
* Submitting your filled ILL information including:
– Date requested
– ILL number
– Lending library
– Amount charged
Note: Reimbursement requests may be submitted monthly or quarterly.
The reimbursement year runs from June 1 to May 31.
* CLRC will also pay an invoice directly to the lender. Send to Anna Dobkowski.
CLRC subsidizes the full cost for member-to-member UPS CampusShip delivery.
The average charge per package sent is $4.50. This adds up to a sizable annual savings and a prime resource sharing benefit to members.
Contact Anna Dobkowski if you have any questions about your CLRC UPS CampusShip account.
Empire Library Delivery (ELD)
The Empire State Library Network (ESLN) administers this statewide delivery, making resource sharing connections among all types of libraries affordable and streamlined.

Regardless of type or size, CLRC member libraries are required to maintain accurate and current bibliographic holding records in OCLC’s WorldCat. These records are a key component for successful and accelerated fill rates for interlibrary loans.
CLRC currently offers copy cataloging services in OCLC Connexion to our Special Library members. Our service will add or delete a local holding record (LHR) in WorldCat.
The Empire State Library Network (ESLN) offers a subscription discount on the RDA Toolkit. Resource, Description and Access, built on the foundations established by AACR2, is an integrated, browser-based, online product that allows users to interact with a collection of cataloging-related documents and resources.
If your library is interested in learning more about cataloging services, contact Anna Dobkowski.
