As of January 1, 2013, CRL’s FY 2012-13 membership total has reached a historic high of 270. This number includes the following newly enrolled members:
- Boston College
- Lenhardt Library of the Chicago Botanic Garden
- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library and Archive
- Carthage College
- Northeastern University
- Presbyterian College
- Kennesaw State University
CRL welcomes these eight institutions to its community of college, university, and independent research libraries, the world’s largest and most enduring collection development community. CRL libraries value primary source materials and work together to identify, acquire and preserve 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. For more information about membership in CRL, visit our webpage on Becoming a Member.
