CRL is the world’s largest and most enduring cooperative collection development community. Member libraries pool resources and expertise to identify, preserve, acquire, and share critical evidence and documentation for original research and evidence-based teaching. The recent growth of CRL membership reflects the importance of primary source materials at academic institutions where expectations for faculty and honors-level student research are high.
