The Hofstra University Library will continue to build on specific areas of its collections thanks to a $16,662 grant from the New York State Education Department.
The award is in support of the Coordinated Collection Development Aid (CCDA) program, which aims to enhance academic library collections in an effort to strengthen regional collections that are available via resource sharing. Under the direction of Howard E. Graves, director of Library and Information Services, residents of New York State will have access to new materials in subject areas including rehabilitation, education, communication, and business.
“This grant has allowed us to build strong collections in areas that Hofstra students are actively engaged in,” said Graves. “Working with our academic library colleagues on Long Island, we continue to build a well-rounded collection that benefits our students and the residents of New York State.”
Hofstra is one of 16 academic institutions on Long Island currently receiving annual funding from the New York State CCDA program.
