CRL libraries will soon have access to a vast database of primary source legal documents and publications, made possible by CRL’s new partnership with the Law Library Microform Consortium (LLMC). During the coming year, all CRL libraries will be able to use LLMC-Digital, a rapidly expanding online database of over 20 million pages of primary legal and government-related materials from all world regions.

The presentation will explore:

  • the history of LLMC’s role in preserving law materials;
  • using the collections to expand resources for research and instruction in history, political science, sociology, cultural studies, and other subjects;
  • plans to select expanded digital content for area studies materials from the holdings of CRL libraries and various repositories.
  • This event is free for librarians and researchers at CRL institutions. CRL presents Webinars throughout the year. On the second Wednesday of April and October at 1:00 p.m. (CT), CRL offers an introductory Webinar that features collections access and services for recently enrolled institutions and new staff at CRL libraries. Other CRL Webinars focus on specific subject areas in CRL collections and other special topics.
