The Southeastern New York Library Resources Council facilitates the lending
and borrowing of books, journals and other media among all types of libraries
in the eight-county service area.
Southeastern New York Library Resources Council's Hospital Library Services
Program (HLSP) has served regional hospitals since the program's creation by
the NYS Legislature in 1982. Since its beginning as a circuit rider program,
the HLSP has provided medical information services, support, and information
technology to participating hospitals in Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange,
Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster counties.
SENYLRC coordinates the Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH) service. HRVH provides
online access to digitized historical items housed in libraries and cultural
throughout the region.
Information Services Program
SENYLRC's Medical Information Services Program (MISP) is designed to help libraries
within the region provide needed medical information to their patrons. MISP
supports quality patient care in hospitals by ensuring that medical personnel
have access to the latest, most accurate and timely medical and clinical health
information. All New Yorkers can benefit by having access to high quality health
information through libraries and existing local, regional, and national partnerships
including access to the medical, clinical and consumer health resources of
the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM).
Coordinated Collection Development Aid
SENYLRC administers the New York State Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA) program for the SENY region. 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.
