Brandeis community members now have access to 5 million new resources through Center for Research Libraries.
Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is a centralized collection of scholarly research materials. CRL is an international not-for-profit consortium of colleges, universities and independent research libraries
The Center for Research Libraries provides a shared collection of five million books, journals, documents and newspapers and electronic resources to its member libraries to supplement their holdings in the humanities, science, and social sciences. CRL materials can be borrowed for extended loan periods, allowing for intensive use of long runs of publications and archives.
CRL resources include:
Membership in CRL allows Brandeis faculty, staff, and enrolled students to easily request these items via Interlibrary Loan.
CRL also offers other services, such as reference consultation; and a demand purchase service for materials, especially foreign dissertations, newspapers and microform archives.
CRL materials can be searched and requested via OneSearch or WorldCat. You may also search the CRL catalog or browse the CRL topic guides to find out more about collections available to you. A Subject Liaison can help you identify CRL materials that might be useful in your research.
