Mary Wilke -

In response to increasing member requests for help with the purchase of electronic resources, CRL added four digital collections to this year’s purchase proposal. Of the four, Gale’s Making of the Modern World and Mass Observation (plus update) from Adam Matthew drew enough interest to explore a group purchase. Working with the NorthEast Research Libraries consortium (NERL), CRL will make these two resources available through a group purchase—including special pricing and a two-year pay plan—for CRL members. The deadline to respond to this exclusive offer is Wednesday, May 12. For more information and to indicate interest in the group purchase, please contact Mary Wilke at 800-621-6044, ext. 351.
