New York Heritage is a collaborative project among New York State's nine Reference and Research Library Resources Councils: Capital District Library Council; Central New York Library Resources Council; Long Island Library Resources Council; METRO-Metropolitan New York Library Council; Northern New York Library Network; Rochester Regional Library Council; South Central Regional Library Council; Southeastern New York Library Resources Council; and Western New York Library Resources Council.
The NY3Rs, funded by New York State, work with member institutions - libraries, archives, museums and historical societies - to digitize original research materials and make those materials available for free on the Internet. The councils are continually adding new collections to nyheritage.org and actively seek collections to expand the site.
