Comments Sought on Proposed NOVEL-Ready Levels

The NOVELNY Steering Committee invites comments by May 27, 2011 on proposed revisions to the "Statewide Internet Library Levels Table." This table (formerly called the "NOVELNY-Ready Library Levels Table") outlines the current library technology requirements for Basic, Advanced and Leader levels and is intended to assist libraries in keeping current with technology trends.

The proposed revisions to the table update the technology requirements for public, school, academic and special libraries. Libraries meeting these requirements are recognized by the New York State Library and by their library system as being "Statewide Internet Library-Ready."

The proposed revised table can be viewed at this Web page.

For comparison purposes, the current version of the table may be viewed at this Web page.

Please send comments or questions about the proposed revisions, by May 27, 2011, to:
David Fiske, Senior Librarian, New York State Library, Division of Library Development, at or call him at 518-486-4857.

The NOVELNY Steering Committee is comprised of library leaders from a broad spectrum of libraries and systems throughout the State. They have the responsibility of implementing the NOVELNY Plan, NOVEL New York Online Virtual Electronic Library: Libraries Expanding Information Access for New Yorkers in the New Century.
