“We’re delighted to announce that Stanford Libraries is now a member of the Center for Research Libraries – Global Forum Network. This greatly expands the gamut of research materials that are available to the entire Stanford community. CRL is a partnership of more than 275 university, college, and independent research libraries. For 60-plus years CRL has acquired and preserved newspapers, journals, documents, archives, and other traditional and digital resources from a global network of sources, and made them available to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery.” (via Stanford University Libraries)
