If you missed the 61st Annual Council Meeting on April 23 and would like to view the presentations, or attended the sessions but would like a refresher, you can view video versions of the PowerPoint presentations for both the morning Business Meeting and the afternoon Collections Forum.  Prototypes for  Global Resources Collections Forum analytical reports, expanding CRL support for collection development and decision-making at CRL libraries, are also available. CRL welcomes ideas from its community on these prototypes and on any additional features that would be useful.

Unique Arab Diaspora Materials Saved for Future Scholars

In FY 2018 the Middle East Materials Project (MEMP) microfilmed Arab-language publications from several diaspora communities in non-Arab countries, including the UK, Japan, the U.S., and Poland. These resources continue to affirm MEMP’s role as a provider of rare and distinctive documentation for scholars.
