A Wealth of Resources and Services for Advanced Research

GSU’s Extraordinary Auxiliary Library Now Available via GALILEO

Recently Henderson Library has become a member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), a partnership of more than 250 university, college, and independent research libraries.  The Center for Research Libraries for 60-plus years has acquired and preserved traditional and digital resources for research and teaching and has made them available to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery.

For researchers at member institutions, CRL functions as an auxiliary library of extraordinary resources with user-focused policies, practices, and services including:

• Unlimited access to CRL’s corpus of five million items
• Project-length loan privileges
• Third-day delivery on the vast majority of interlibrary loans
• Demand Purchase Program ~ Enables university researchers to request purchases up to $2,000 annually in three areas: foreign dissertations, newspapers, and archival material

CRL collection strengths are diverse and highly developed, including:

• Largest collection of circulating newspapers in North America
~ 6,500 international newspapers
~ 2,500 U.S. newspapers, many dating to the colonial era.
~ 2,000 U.S. ethnic titles
~ About 5,000 Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp newspapers and newsletters.
• More than 38,000 foreign journals that are rarely held in U.S. libraries.
