Librarians and library staff visiting Chicago for the ALA Annual Conference this summer are invited to participate in a CRL collections and facility tour. Don't miss this behind-the-scenes look at our closed-stack library of rarely held material from around the world. CRL staff will be on hand to discuss new developments in our services, including digitization and offers for electronic resources, as well as expanded access to primary source collections.

These free tours are scheduled for Friday, June 28, at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Transportation will be provided on a chartered shuttle bus from the McCormick Convention Center to CRL and back. The number of tour slots is limited, so advance registration is required.

MORNING TOUR ~ This tour is at capacity; no further registrations are available.

AFTERNOON TOUR ~ This tour is at capacity; no further registrations are available.
