The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) collects and makes available important and rare collections of primary source materials, as well as thousands of foreign dissertations, historical journals, and newspapers from around the world.

The collections are so varied as to include an unpublished manuscript music collection from Oxford, the vast engineering library of Linda Hall, and rare monograph and pamphlet area collections from various regions of the world. For example, the Sutro Library Mexican collection includes over 3,000 titles from the 1500-1900 time period, covering cultural, economic, political, religious, and social themes in Mexican history.

These collections are made available in print, in microfilm, and, in many cases, online. Faculty, students, and staff are eligible to borrow resources through an extended delivery system or, when available, through electronic delivery or online.  See our Subject Guide to the Center for Research Libraries for more information.
