The Upstate New York Science Librarians Group (NYSCILIB) is a loosely affiliated group of predominantly academic science and engineering librarians in New York State. While we have identified ourselves with a general geographic region of the state, we are not bound by it, and we have had science librarians attend our annual get-togethers from as “far south” as Stony Brook University on Long Island. What ties us together are our interests in science librarianship and our interests in one another.
