We are excited to share that Davidson College is now a member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries. This CRL consortium provides access to diverse collections that are shaped by specialists at major U.S. and Canadian research universities. Through the incredible efforts of CRL, collections are identified, preserved, and made accessible to researchers across the world.
CRL’s resources include:
– The largest circulating collection of newspapers in North America–more than 16,000 newspaper titles from all world regions and from every U.S. state—mainstream dailies and opposition papers, rare publications from international conflict zones, U.S. ethnic titles and early African-American newspapers
– Access to rich holdings in STE print serials through a partnership with the Linda Hall Library of Science, Technology and Engineering
– More than 800,000 non-U.S. dissertations
– Area Studies: major collections of news, government documents, and archives from Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Southeast and South Asia
CRL functions as a “branch library” for members and includes quick turnaround of loan requests and project-length loan privileges from CRL’s five million items.
