“All public school districts and nonpublic schools are eligible for membership in a School Library System. School Library Systems are state-aided consortia which provide vital resources which may be beyond the fiscal ability of their members. In addition to fostering “best practices” in teaching and librarianship, School Library Systems offer their members a variety of services including: resource sharing; electronic catalogs and databases; interlibrary loan; professional development; and curriculum support.”

Taken directly from http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/slssap/slsm.pdf

It is our mission to provide our member librarians with the support, resources and professional development to continue to be both educational leaders and collaborative partners with the teachers and administrators in each of our component districts. We facilitate equitable access to information resources for all students and instructional members in each district and we are committed to helping our libraries in their efforts to help each and every student meet and exceed the challenges of becoming college and career ready by graduation.
