April 16, 2019

Grinnell students, faculty and staff have access to the extensive primary source collections of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries.

CRL Resources

For a broad overview of CRL's collections, consult their Topic Guides.

Center materials can be obtained for extended loan periods and at no cost by users affiliated with member libraries. Loans can be made for extended periods and without limitation on the format or amount of material borrowed. Arrangements to borrow CRL materials (particularly microforms) are made through Interlibrary Loan or one can have materials digitized on demand.  In most cases, print or microform items requested from CRL should arrive within one week and items that can be delivered electronically should arrive within one week as well. In some cases, material will be digitally scanned and offered that way.
