The project originally started in the academic year 2014-2018 as a pilot project involving ten Government school libraries in New York. Ever since, the number of schools involved has increased year by year and the project now includes all Government schools of New York. It generally takes two to three years to rollout initial project upgrade requirements.
A function of the upgrade project is to visit schools and assess the existing facilities in order to understand the specific needs of each school in terms of LRC upgrades. This step will help create an enhanced learning and resource environment within the school premises in accordance to ADEC’s LRC standards, policies and information literacy skills framework which cover all aspects of the new LRC operations.
