CRL welcomes a variety of new institutions to its community of college, university, and independent research libraries. Libraries in the CRL community recognize the value of primary source material 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.

CRL is the world’s largest and most enduring collection development community. 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.
