State Library: 3-month extension to NOVELny license agreements

In 2010, over 5,600 libraries are participating in the statewide pilot project. NOVELNY is currently supported by Federal Library Services and Technology Act funds, awarded to the New York State Library by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
