What is the Center for Research Libraries?
The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is a centralized collection of scholarly research materials in all disciplines. CRL is an international not-for-profit consortium of colleges, universities and libraries that makes available scholarly research resources to users everywhere. CRL is governed by the major research libraries of North America and is funded by fees, grants and contributions. Its outstanding collections include more than 3.5 million volumes of research materials rarely held in North American libraries. CRL offers large collections of foreign dissertations, newspapers, and microfilm sets. Because Loyola Notre Dame Library has membership in CRL, all Loyola and Notre Dame students, faculty, and staff may borrow these collections through Interlibrary Loan.
CRL materials are accessible through the main search on the library website and the CRL Catalog. You can also browse the CRL topic guides to find out more about resources available to you. Explore a growing collection of online digital collections, including pamphlets from the French Revolution, materials from South Asia, and government documents from Brazil.
Some resources from CRL are available immediately. The full text of these items can be accessed through the library website, indicated with the "Find It" button. Items that are not yet digitized can be requested through interlibrary loan. These items are referenced on the library website but will be shown with a "Request Through Interlibrary Loan" link.
If you have any questions about accessing materials from CRL, please contact your library liaison or chat with a librarian 24/7!
