The New York City School Library System (NYCSLS)/Department of Literacy, AIS, and Library Services is a part of a state-funded network of 40 NYS school library systems and is an integral part of the New York City Department of Education's Office of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Learning (CIPL). NYCSLS offers an array of services and professional development opportunities designed to support librarians, administrators, and teachers to develop strong library programs. For additional information on any of our programs or services, please contact [email protected].

With the aid of numerous partners, we have built a repository of digital resources to meet the needs of every educator, leader, parent, and child in New York City. In partnership with the Office of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Learning, we have purchased more than 140 professional titles for educators. With the aid of an IMLS grant, we purchased more than 150 titles for K-12 students. With further funding from the department, we have a built a collection of professional materials for librarians and makers. With the aid of the Office of Teaching Effectiveness, we have aligned these resources to the Danielson and Quality Review rubrics for schools to easily access relevant titles. We also feature the NOVELNY state database program, MyLibraryNYC Program, and other databases we purchase access to, to facilitate the learning of the entire New York City Community.

These resources are all FREELY available to all schools with restrictions on some of our eBook collections for charter & Independent schools. All resources will automatically log you in on a DOE network. Email [email protected] for the password if not on a DOE network from your DOE email for access.
