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.

Presenters: Bernard Reilly, President and Ann Okerson, Senior Advisor on Electronic Strategies, 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.

The Impact of CRL

Stories illustrating CRL’s impact on research, teaching, collection building and preservation.

Helping Libraries Deal with ‘Big’ Data

At CRL’s 2018 Global Collections Forum, Julie Sweetkind-Singer, Head of Branner Earth Sciences Library and Map Collections at Stanford University Libraries, discussed how satellite imagery and large geospatial datasets are being used as source materials for scholars in a variety of disciplines, and the new types of library support they require.

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.
