On Sunday, November 4, the Albany Times Union led its Business section with a feature story on the economic benefits of licensed research generated by local universities.

Community leaders and state policy makers are counting on this sort of academic-industry partnership to drive the innovation economy and create jobs in upstate New York.

It is essential that we make sure everyone understands that research of this nature requires leading edge information resources – the kind that are provided by academic libraries. As soon as we establish this linkage in the minds of decision-makers academic libraries will begin to garner the financial support they need and deserve.

Your help in establishing this relationship is invaluable – and ultimately will determine if NYSHEI is successful.
