The Rutgers University Libraries hold voting membership in the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), an international not-for-profit consortium of colleges, universities, and libraries that makes available scholarly research resources to users everywhere. The Libraries' membership gives members of the Rutgers University community access through interlibrary loan to CRL's collections. Open to scholars and researchers, CRL's outstanding collections include more than four million volumes of research materials rarely held in North American libraries.
CRL collections are not represented in the Library Catalog. To access the CRL collections, you may search the CRL Catalog . The RLIN library identifier for CRL is ILRC. If you wish to request a book, journal, dissertation, newspaper, or other item from CRL and are eligible for interlibrary services from the Rutgers libraries, you may submit a Rutgers online interlibrary loan request. It is helpful if you indicate in the additional information box that the item is available from CRL.
CRL has also created databases to find special resources in their collections. Databases are available for Civilian Conservation Corps camp papers, current CIS serials, and the ethnic press.
