CRL’s various cooperative collection programs identify valuable collections for acquisition and, increasingly, electronic access.

As a central component of its collection strategy, CRL supports cooperative purchase of major collections, such as the Central American Archives (right). As electronic resources have gained in importance, CRL has integrated electronic resource offers into its collection building programs. Examples of recent offers for major and specialized electronic databases include: Nineteenth Century Collections Online, Shen Bao Digital Archive, and Statista.

In this informative one-hour webinar, Member Liaison and Outreach Services Director Mary Wilke and Digital Program Manager Virginia Kerr explain how libraries can participate in CRL’s evolving programs, contribute to electronic resource reviews, and take advantage of electronic licensing and purchasing offers.

This event is free for librarians and researchers at CRL institutions. CRL presents webinars throughout the year.

Unique Arab Diaspora Materials Saved for Future Scholars

In FY 2018 the Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) microfilmed Arab-language publications from several diaspora communities in non-Arab countries, including the UK, Japan, the U.S., and Poland. These resources continue to affirm MEMP’s role as a provider of rare and distinctive documentation for scholars.
