Center of Research Libraries’ Services available to UConn Faculty

The Center of Research Libraries (CRL) is “an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries. Founded in 1949, CRL supports advanced research and teaching in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences by preserving and making available to scholars the primary source material critical to those disciplines.

UConn is a member institution, and therefore UConn (faculty, staff, and students) can borrow from the vast library of materials available at CRL for your research.

The collections at CRL, http://www.crl.edu/collections/ cover a wide variety of topics, regions, time periods and formats such as microfilms, monographs and digital formats. For example, you can access archival collections from United States, United Kingdom and even Cambodia. In addition, dissertations, monographs and newspapers collection covering most regions in the world (Latin America, Asia, Africa, etc…) are available for Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

CRL offers the following services to CRL institutional members:

  • Hard Copy and Microform Loans (books, microfilms)
