Jason Kramer, NYSHEI Executive Director, today testified before the New York State Commission on State Asset Maximization.
Mr. Kramer argued that New York’s higher education sector is the state’s greatest asset. By using ARIA to “maximize” that asset an information infrastructure could be created to improve educational opportunities, spur research, lower the cost of business and empower.
“Commissioners seemed interested in ARIA, and reassured that ARIA has already been vetted and endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education,” said Mr. Kramer. “NYSHEI will continue to push ARIA at every available opportunity – it is too important to our libraries.”
