New York Three R’s Organization
The New York Three R’s Organization (NYTRO) is composed of the nine Reference and Research Resources systems in New York State.
Each 3R’s is governed by a locally elected board of trustees and has substantial input from member libraries through a robust committee structure.
Members include both individual libraries — public, academic, and special libraries — and library systems. All the public and school library systems in the state are members of their regional 3R’s.
3R’s provide a range of support services to our members and ensure interlibrary sharing among all kinds of libraries in New York State.
The reference and research resources systems do collectively what their constituent libraries and library systems cannot do individually or what can be done better together.
By identifying resources and developing structures and systems for sharing those resources among users of all types of libraries, 3R’s open worlds of knowledge and information to millions of students, teachers, researchers and citizens from all walks of life and economic backgrounds.
