Accessing the State Library from your own PC

This article -- "Driver's license provides access to state library holdings" -- talks about a new feature implemented by the New York State Library which allows NYS residents to use their driver's license ID number to access the online resources provided by the NYS Library. These online resources are known as the New York Online Virtual Electronic Library (NOVEL). NOVEL is available to all NYS residents for free. The resources can also be accessed through many public and academic libraries in the State.

Most people will wonder if the system does any tracking of users and the answer is "no." Entering the driver's license ID number ensure that the person is a NYS resident. If you access the resources through your local library, you would use the number on your library card.
