Kreitzberg Library for CGCS Students

Use the Center for Research Libraries

Our CRL membership provides access to U.S. and foreign newspapers, infrequently held journals, foreign dissertations, gov doc and archival materials.

On Demand Purchases

CRL purchases certain research materials via the Demand Purchase Program for their member libraries. These materials include:

  • Foreign Doctoral Dissertations from institutions in countries outside of the U.S. and Canada
  • Newspapers for which CRL owns at least one day of a newspaper title
  • Archival material from national governments (including the U.S. National Archives), NGOs, and other organizations and institutions

If you locate materials in one of these categories during your research and believe they fall into CRL's credentials for On Demand Purhcases, please submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.

  • Once logged in, select the appropriate item type under New Request. If none are appropriate, choose Other.
  • Fill out the appropriate form as fully as possible.
  • Put CRL - Purchase in the Notes field.

Our ILL office will request the purchase from CRL. Do note this process can take considerable time (weeks) depending on where items are being purchased from and there is a purchase limit per patron, but it is very generous. If you are not sure the item you are interested in qualifies, please contact our ILL office.

On Demand Digitization

Though we are not able to extend CRL's interlibrary loan services to online students, their on demand digitization service is a very close substitute!

If you located materials through the CRL catalog you would like to consult, submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.

  • Once logged in, select the appropriate item type under New Request. If none are appropriate, choose Other.
  • Fill out the appropriate form as fully as possible.
  • Put CRL - Digitize in the Notes field of the form.

Our ILL office will request on demand digitization from CRL. If the materials are not in the condition to be digitized, you will receive a cancellation notice. The turnaround for on demand digitization is generally 3-5 business days, but can vary depending on the size of the request and the condition of the material. So do plan accordingly.
