The Libraries have joined the CRL, providing quick access to a plethora of new historical holdings. Large amounts of microfilm and other material can quickly be sent for long periods of time, including many historical foreign newspapers, dissertations, and much more. Search directly or search and request material via WorldCat.
We have purchased and installed several new microfilm reader/scanners with improved software and new features in support of our new CRL access, as well as the wealth of microfilm material in the BC Libraries collections. Currently available on O'Neill Level 3. Please contact me with any questions.
The Libraries now have full-run, full-text access to some of the most important American opinion periodicals, including: Commonweal, Harpers, Nation, National Review, New Republic, New Yorker, and more. All are cross-searchable.
