The Center for Research Libraries, a consortium of North American libraries to which BGSU belongs, is yet another source that provides greater access to library materials for BGSU patrons. The Center collects resources that it then makes available to patrons in member libraries through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery.
There are a wide variety of resources available for your use, many of which are specifically devoted to music. In general,
CRL holds over four million newspapers, journals, dissertations, archives, government publications and other traditional and digital resources for research and teaching. Holdings include such diverse materials as 800,000 doctoral dissertations (including those of Albert Einstein, Dag Hammarskjold and other Nobel laureates), some of the earliest African-American newspapers and the 100,000-plus-page archive of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge security force. Emphasis is on materials produced outside the United States, and the Center has special strength in publications and archives from many developing nations.
A significant number of CRL’s holdings appear in the OhioLINK catalog and may be requested through OhioLINK. Others are not cataloged, but you may see a list of music collections at: http://www.crl.edu/content.asp?l1=5&l2=22&l3=39&top=40.
