The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is a consortium of North American universities, colleges, and independent research libraries. The consortium acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, dissertations, government documents, archives, microfilm, and other traditional and digital resources for research and teaching and makes them available to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery (MLibrary is a member of CRL). Most of CRL's new acquisitions are from outside the United States, and many are from five "emerging" regions of the world: Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Latin America.
Although interlibrary loan access is limited to U-M affiliated persons, the CRL Online Catalog, however, is open to all users.
The CRL Online Catalog is a partial list of their library and digital holdings. The catalog allows searching within specific collections, including:
- the entire catalog
- serials (periodicals, excluding newspapers)
- newspapers (includes browsing by US State or foreign country, and by North American ethnic group)
- dissertations (includes browsing by country and by foreign institution within each country)
- digital collections
