NOVELny Funding Restored

Stony Brook University Libraries (SBUL), on behalf of The New York State Library, are pleased to announce that funding for the NOVELny (New York Online Virtual Electronic Library) statewide e-resources was included in the New York State Budget for 2024-2025.  Pending required approvals the current collection of NOVELny statewide e-resources will continue through June 30, 2025 and additional resources will be added.  Please see the complete list below. 

NOVELny is an online virtual library connecting New Yorkers to 21st century information via libraries and library systems statewide.  NOVELny is an electronic resource access project that enables libraries across New York State to give their communities online access to the full text of thousands of journals, newspapers and other references.

NOVELny is important to SBU because it provides many of our incoming students their only access to databases before arriving on campus.  Many school districts across New York State lack the funding to provide access to databases independently.  Without these databases, students across New York State would be unprepared to perform the research expected in higher education.  SBUL is thankful to New York State for securing funding for this important program.
