Center for Research Libraries - Global Resources Network

Resources for

Global Resources Forum Reviews are community-sourced assessments of major databases and digital collections in the social sciences and humanities. Reviews emphasize primary source collections of high interest to CRL and Global Resources libraries, with particular emphasis on news, government archives, legal and government publications, census and demographic data, finance, trade, and public policy.

GRF Reviews provide timely and actionable information on electronic resources to inform collection development decisions at CRL libraries. Reviews often are posted in advance of the product release and are augmented by formal critiques and member comments as the collections become accessible.
