Topic Guides

CRL offers topic guides listing a selection of key source materials that can support research in various areas. New citations are added from time to time; reformulated guides (marked below) also provide an overview of the current “landscape” of information dissemination and collecting in particular fields, and reference selected online resources available through CRL.

Member libraries are encouraged to reference CRL collection strengths in local subject guides. Options include:

  • Linking to CRL topic guides, or to specific titles or archival sets cited in the guides
  • Linking to a defined search tab within the CRL catalog, such as “Newspapers” or “Dissertations
  • Consulting with CRL to create customized scripts to search the CRL catalog for particular topics

Sample boilerplate language is available for referencing CRL collections.
