The 2018 Global Resources Collections Forum, in Chicago on May 17-18, will explore how CRL and its community can best deploy available resources to support research and scholarly practice in this new environment. The Forum, to be held in conjunction with CRL's 2018 Council of Voting Members meeting, is an opportunity for representatives of CRL libraries to help shape our programs and strategic agenda.
