The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is a consortium of North American universities, colleges and independent research libraries that acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, archives and other traditional and digital resources for research and teaching. The collection includes over 4.5 million rarely held books, journals, newspapers, foreign dissertations, government documents, and other primary source materials, with a special strength in publications and archives from many developing nations, making it a treasure trove for those researching global health issues. In addition to the print and microform collection, the CRL has over 8000 items digitized including historical world newspapers, Chinese pamphlets, and periodicals and pamphlets of the French Revolution which can be easily browsed at the e-collections page.
As a member of the CRL, University of Vermont students, faculty, and staff can take advantage of this diverse collection for their advanced research and teaching needs. To find materials in the collection, you can search a particular collection or search the entire CRL collection. Once you find an item you want to request, proceed to the interlibrary loan request page. If you have any questions about using the CRL, a librarian would be happy to assist you.
