Every individual in New York State should have access to electronic doorway library services. A Statewide Internet-Ready Library library, as an integral part of the statewide electronic learning community, uses computers and telecommunications technology, a full range of library resources, and the services of skilled library personnel to:
  • create, assemble, evaluate, and use information;
  • extend access to library services from homes, schools, work places, and other locations;
  • facilitate access by people with disabilities and other special needs;
  • go beyond the library's walls to obtain information and resources; and
  • enable its users to access journals, magazines, newspapers and other resources available through a suite of NOVELNY electronic collections.

These libraries meet the ongoing library and information needs of education, government, business, and all people regardless of age, background, and location.
