This quarterly webinar will report on the current status of major CRL initiatives and programs. Presentations will focus on three areas:


2:00-2:30 p.m. CDT   Licensing: Newspaper Site Licensing Developments

CRL’s efforts to engage major news producers in academic site licenses have resulted in tangible benefits for investing institutions, though challenges remain in finding economical models. CRL will provide an update on recent efforts and discuss prospective offers from additional publishers.

Presenters: Bernard Reilly, President and Ann Okerson, Senior Advisor on Electronic Strategies, CRL


2:30-3:00 p.m. CDT   Digitization: the Growing Impact of CRL’s Demand Scanning

CRL digitizes material from its collection in response to patron requests, making it available to all CRL member libraries. CRL staff will highlight recent collections scanned on demand, demonstrating how this service enhances member value.

Presenter: James Simon, Vice President, Collections and Services, CRL



3:00-3:30 p.m. CDT   Shared Print: Findings from "Mining Serials Preservation Data" Project

CRL has recently completed an NEH-supported pilot effort to mine and assess bibliographic records for historical print serials reformatted through major preservation programs. Findings suggest steps the community may take to improve data that supports decisions on preservation and maintenance of local print serial collections.

Presenters: Marie Waltz, Special Projects Manager and Amy Wood, Head, Technical Services, CRL


Registrants are encouraged to tune in to any or all of these three segments.


CRL quarterly webinars are open to all librarians, staff, and faculty at CRL member institutions. Most are recorded and available for later access. Additional information on accessing CRL webinars can be found under Membership.
