Access to Major Research Center Coming This Summer

The Boston College Libraries will be joining the Center for Research Libraries this coming July. Membership provides a number of benefits, the major one being access to its numerous research resources unavailable anywhere else. Examples of its collections include documents from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), dissertations from universities outside the U.S. and Canada, foreign government documents, U.S. ethnic newspapers, and microfilm of books printed in Europe before 1601. Records for many of these items will be loaded into the library’s online catalog, making these resources easier to find. If you plan on exploring the CRL’s collections and services during the summer, feel free to contact your Subject Librarian for more information.
