The German-North American Resources Partnership (GNARP) supports the acquisition, sharing, and use of German-language materials among North American libraries, and the fostering of closer collaboration with German research libraries.
GNARP is made possible through the support of the Center for Research Libraries, which serves as its administrative, fiscal, and legal agent.
These working groups are composed of librarians employed by member institutions. They make use of new technologies to explore and develop more effective collaboration and resource sharing, especially through the negotiation of advantageous licenses to German databases for North American member libraries. Recent new initiatives include websites that identify holdings of Germany newspapers and members willing to facilitate internships and visits at their institutions for professionals from the other country. Please contact us with your suggestions for new resources and collaborations.
