CRL is currently accepting nominations for the FY11 Purchase Proposal Program. All CRL libraries may nominate major microform and hard copy collections for CRL purchase under this acquisition program. Last year’s program resulted in the purchase of ten sets with a total value of $172,674.

CRL sent passwords to access the online nomination form to the contact person at each CRL library.  To obtain the name of your institution's contact, or if your institution did not receive a password, please email Mary Wilke.
