While there are forty-four SUNY libraries that are members of IDS Project, there are some libraries within SUNY not taking advantage of IDS Project membership benefits.  These benefits include free reciprocal resource sharing between members (both within and outside of New York State), mentoring from our certified IDS Project mentors, professional development opportunities for ILL practitioners, the IDS Logic ILL Automation Suite, and the Article Licensing Information Availability Service.  Please contact me at if you would like to learn more about IDS Project membership or ILL automation services that are available to your library.
