The CRL community has reached a historic high of 264 institutions, with the recent addition of three new members:
CRL welcomes these new institutions to its community of college, university, and independent research libraries. CRL is the world’s largest and most enduring collection development community. CRL libraries value primary source materials and work together to identify, preserve, and acquire critical evidence and documentation for advanced research and teaching. Their researchers in turn benefit from a wealth of collections and services.
This new growth in its membership suggests that libraries of all sizes view participation in CRL as a vital investment at a time when resources for local collection development are scarce. Even in the recent economic climate, the CRL membership cost-share rate has remained constant. To estimate the cost-share rate for your library, visit our webpage on Becoming a Member.
