The UNL Libraries announced that it recently became a member of the Center for Research Libraries, a partnership of more than 260 university, college, and independent research libraries.
For 60-plus years the CRL has acquired and preserved newspapers, journals, documents, and other print and digital resources, and made them available to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery.
For UNL researchers, CRL functions as an auxiliary library of rare and unique resources with a user-focused practice of:
• Unlimited access to CRL’s 5 million items
• Project-length loan privileges
• Third-day delivery on the vast majority of interlibrary loans
• Patrons can request purchases up to $2,000 annually in three areas: foreign dissertations, newspapers, and archival material.
CRL collections are diverse and highly developed with:
• The largest collection of circulating newspapers in North America
• More than 38,000 foreign journals that are rarely held in U.S. libraries
• More than 80,000 foreign dissertations – mostly from European institutions
• Major microfilm and paper collections from Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Asia, Southeast Asia, and more
• In-depth holding that support research in history of science, economics, law and government, immigration and population studies, cultural studies, and more.
