Amends the State Library Act. Provides that the State Librarian shall create an electronic form for each public library in the State to complete and list each research database or a library media streaming database that the public library wants the State Librarian to obtain. Provides that, for each research database or library media streaming database that is requested in the forms, the State Librarian shall attempt to negotiate with the research database or library media streaming database to purchase subscriptions to the database at a price that is lower than individual public libraries could obtain. Provides that, if the State Librarian is successful in negotiating a database price that is lower than individual public libraries could obtain, the State Librarian must obtain subscriptions in a number equal to or greater than the number of public libraries that requested that particular database. Provides that the public libraries requesting the database shall pay the State Librarian the cost of the database subscription for that public library.
