NYSHEI Statement to Governor Spitzer

At the request of Governor Spitzer’s office NYSHEI has issued a brief statement on the future of public higher education.

In the statement, NYSHEI argues that success of the developing “innovation economy” hinges on a recognition and elevation of the importance of academic and research libraries in the “information infrastructure” needed to support that economy.

An excerpt from the statement:

“NYSHEI libraries are a key to maintaining the collections needed to attract and retain leading research faculty.  In maintaining access for the community-at-large, these same libraries are an asset to small businesses and entrepreneurs.”
