Strengthening CRL Global Collections


CRL is committed to the past, present, and future of international collections and collecting. Today, global collections at CRL constitute a disparate suite of hosted programs and activities that have evolved organically over decades. In 2023, the CRL community convened to begin to weave these activities together into a holistic strategy aligned with CRL's core mission to cooperatively build, preserve, and share global collections and content. This foundational work sets the stage for continued community engagement throughout 2024, as our unique member community reinvests in and scales its global collections activities in service to research and scholarship.
