The Center for Research Libraries first created the CRL Primary Source Awards in 2009 to recognize innovative uses of primary source materials by faculty, librarians and library staff, students, and other researchers in the CRL community. Nominations are accepted in three arenas: access, research, and teaching. This year the CRL Collections and Services Policy Committee, chaired by Dan Hazen, Harvard University, selected the following awardees for recognition:
