s 20313. Affiliation with a Regional Library Network.


(a) If any institution or public library jurisdiction joins the regional
library network serving its geographic area under the provisions of
Education Code Section 18830, its affiliation shall be certified by the
state board.

(b) Should an institution or public library jurisdiction wish to join a
regional library network other than the one serving its geographic area,
it may request an exception to the geographic boundary requirement from
the state board. An exception may also be requested to enable all
participating libraries of a single institution or public library
jurisdiction to be served by a single regional library network. The state
board's approval for exceptions shall be based on its determination that:

(1) the proposed membership is at least as effective a way of
carrying out the purposes of the Act as would be the case if the
membership were with the regional library network serving the
geographic area; and


(2) the proposed membership does not result in an inefficient
expenditure of state funds or redundancy of service.


(c) If the participating libraries of an institution or a public library
jurisdiction are located in geographic areas served by different regional
library networks, the institution or public library jurisdiction may
become a member of each regional library network serving one or more of
its participating libraries. However, each participating library shall
receive state-supported services from a single regional library network
and only that regional library network shall file a certification of
library participation with the state board under the provisions of Section
20313(f) of this subchapter for the participating library.

(d) The administrative body of the regional library network shall file a
notice of agreement and the institutional governing body or the public
library jurisdictional governing body shall file an affiliation request
with the state board by April 1 of the fiscal year prior to the fiscal
year when such status is sought.

(1) The notice of agreement shall certify that the regional library
network approves the membership application of the institution or
public library jurisdiction.


(2) The affiliation request shall certify that the governing body
or appropriate administrative authority for the institution or
jurisdiction wishes to join the regional library network and agrees
to comply with the provisions of this Act.


(e) For purposes of determining the eligibility of the affiliating
institution or public library jurisdiction to receive services and funds
under the provisions of this Act, an affiliation shall be considered
effective beginning July 1 of the fiscal year immediately following the
fiscal year in which the affiliation is certified by the state board. The
state board may approve an earlier effective date if it determines that
such action would best serve the purposes of the Act.

(f) Participating Libraries.

(1) If a library within a member institution or member public
library jurisdiction elects to become a participating library and it
meets the eligibility criteria for a participating library as set
forth in Education Code Section 18830(a-b), and its participation is
approved by the regional library network, the administrative body of
the regional library network shall file a certification of library
participation with the state board by April 1 of the fiscal year
prior to the fiscal year when such status is sought.


(2) For purposes of determining the eligibility of the
participating library to receive services and funds under the
provisions of this Act, the status of the library as a participating
library shall be considered effective beginning July 1 of the fiscal
year immediately following the fiscal year in which the
certification of library participation is filed with the state
board. The state board may approve an earlier effective date if it
determines that such action would best serve the purposes of the
Act.
