This quarterly webinar will report on the current status of major CRL initiatives and programs. Presentations will focus on three areas:
2:00-2:30 p.m. CDT Licensing: Newspaper Site Licensing Developments
CRL’s efforts to engage major news producers in academic site licenses have resulted in tangible benefits for investing institutions, though challenges remain in finding economical models. CRL will provide an update on recent efforts and discuss prospective offers from additional publishers.
Presenter: Bernard Reilly, President, CRL
2:30-3:00 p.m. CDT Digitization: the Growing Impact of CRL’s Demand Scanning
CRL digitizes material from its collection in response to patron requests, making it available to all CRL member libraries. CRL staff will highlight recent collections scanned on demand, demonstrating how this service enhances member value.
Presenter: James Simon, Vice President, Collections and Services, CRL
3:00-3:30 p.m. CDT Shared Print: Findings from "Mining Serials Preservation Data" Project
CRL has recently completed an NEH-supported pilot effort to mine and assess bibliographic records for historical print serials reformatted through major preservation programs. Findings suggest steps the community may take to improve data that supports decisions on preservation and maintenance of local print serial collections.
Presenters: Marie Waltz, Special Projects Manager and Amy Wood, Head, Technical Services, CRL
Registrants are encouraged to tune in to any or all of these three segments.
CRL quarterly webinars are open to all librarians, staff, and faculty at CRL member institutions. Most are recorded and available for later access. Additional information on accessing CRL webinars can be found under Membership.
