Wednesday, July 9, 2008

In June, 2008, CRL surpassed one million pages already digitized for scholars at member libraries. The milestone figure represents the digital conversion of more than 7,500 items to date, all discoverable through the CRL catalog as well as OCLC’s Worldcat.

Digital delivery of full-length texts began in 2006 as part of the Center’s strategic commitment to expanding its digital services. CRL now scans approximately 60,000 pages monthly from its holdings in microfilm, microfiche and bound volumes to support research and teaching in the CRL member community.
