Comments from CRL President Bernard Reilly

James T. Simon, CRL Director of International Resources, reports on a recent conference at Duke University that explored the connections between global scholarship and the collective ability of research libraries to support it.

At a recent conference at Yale University, academic library leaders responsible for international and area studies collections and staff gathered to discuss common challenges and identify strategic areas for joint action, as Yale’s Ellen H. Hammond, Director, International Collections & Research Support, describes.
