CRL and law libraries partner for preservation and access

Share this on social media:

The USA-based Consortium for Research Libraries (CRL) will expand the scope of its preservation activities and make new primary source digital collections available to its libraries through a partnership with the Law Library Microform Consortium (LLMC). Under this partnership, CRL and LLMC will work together to identify, preserve, and provide digital access to important at-risk primary sources in the fields of international law, government, and politics.

A joint CRL-LLMC committee will guide identification of collections for digitisation, which will be drawn from CRL and other repositories. These new additions are expected to support the interests of CRL libraries and augment CRL’s collection strengths in area and international studies, such as African legal materials. LLMC has access to a large body of material listed in the bibliography Common Law Abroad, which document the heritage of constitutional and legal regimes in former British territories and colonies, including British Africa.
