SUNY New Paltz Sojourner Truth Library receives grant to expand collection
NEW PALTZ -- The New York State Education Department has awarded Chui-chun Lee, the director of the Sojourner Truth Library at the State University of New York at New Paltz, an $11,822 grant for her project titled "Coordinated Collection Development Aid Application 2001-2002."
The Sojourner Truth Library will use the grant to make its exceptional art, business and engineering holdings available to researchers in the area via resource sharing. Resource sharing allows reference materials and books to be exchanged between any SUNY school library. This program promotes cooperation among academic libraries in the region to coordinate collection development.
"We are delighted to receive this grant during this time of budget crisis, allowing us to continue the development of our collection," said Lee.
Located in the heart of a dynamic college town, 90 minutes from metropolitan New York City, the State University of New York at New Paltz is a highly selective college of about 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
One of the most well-regarded public colleges in the nation, New Paltz delivers an extraordinary number of majors in Business, Liberal Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Fine and Performing Arts and Education.
New Paltz embraces its culture as a community where talented and independent minded people from around the world create close personal links with real scholars and artists who love to teach.
