CRL Expands News Coverage for Members
In a recent message to CRL library directors, Bernie Reilly reported that CRL has begun to explore providing “end-to end” coverage of news content to researchers at CRL libraries. The recent CRL offers of several key news databases from Readex are a step in that direction: they provide favorable terms for access to a range of historic and current news content.
CRL has made its catalog records available to members in a variety of ways: tape loading, record sets from OCLC, and since 2006, via FTP on a quarterly schedule. Now, CRL records are also available to subscribers of Ex Libris’ Primo Central and ProQuest’s Summon.
