Center for Research Libraries Catalog

Cornell University Library is a member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries. CRL acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, archives, and other traditional and digital resources from a global network of sources. Most of the materials acquired are from outside the United States, and many are from the emerging regions of the world: Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Latin America.

Members of the Cornell University community may borrow primary source materials from CRL for extended periods through Interlibrary Loan. To identify materials of interest, search the CRL Catalog. Tabbed sections include basic and advanced search, search tips, and advice on requesting materials. Once you have located material for loan, fill out an ILL request for each title you wish to borrow. For additional information on CRL visit For assistance, contact Eric Kofi Acree.
