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. CST Shared Print: "PAN Forum and the Shared Print Landscape in 2018"
Presenter: Marie Waltz, Special Projects Manager, CRL

CRL’s 2015 landmark summit on shared print in North America suggested that only a small portion of the universe of published serials is covered by the existing archiving and shared print programs. How has the situation improved since then? CRL staff will provide an update on commitments registered in PAPR and report significant developments discussed at the Print Archives Network Forum at ALA Midwinter in Seattle.

2:30-3:00 p.m. CST Digitization: "New Resources for Law & Government Information in LLMC Digital"
Presenter: James Simon, Vice-President, CRL

Since 2010, CRL and LLMC have collaborated through the Global Resources Partnership in Law and Government on digitization and access to critical research resources. LLMC will report on significant additions to its collection, including the Early State Records archive, and recent platform improvements to enhance full-text searchability and content navigation.

3:00-3:30 p.m. CST Licensing: "The HistoryMakers Digital Archive"
Presenter: Dionti Davis, The HistoryMakers Digital Archive

The HistoryMakers Digital Archive includes over 3,000 interviews with prominent African Americans ranging from Marian Wright Edelman to General Colin Powell to President Barack Obama early in his career. Representatives from THM will discuss current additions to the collection and prospects for growth through new investments.

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.

The Impact of CRL

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

Unique Arab Diaspora Materials Saved for Future Scholars

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

Insights on Israel’s Palestinians from a Rare Arab-language Newspaper

CRL's newspaper collection played a critical role in shaping Brothers Apart, a study of Arab Israeli citizens in the 1950s-1960s by University of Arizona professor, Maha Nassar.
