Bernard Reilly, president of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), will give a presentation on ways the center assists faculty and academic researchers through unique and specialized research materials. His talk, “The Changing Landscape of Knowledge Resources and How the Center for Research Libraries Is Responding to Those Changes,” will be given Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Library, Instruction Room 228 (accessed from the first floor of the library). All members of the university community are invited to the presentation, which will be followed by a question and answer period.

George Mason University Libraries is a member of the Chicago-based CRL, a consortium of North American universities, colleges, and independent research libraries, and provides access to its collections. The center, “a research library for research libraries,” supports advanced research and teaching in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. The consortium acquires and preserves newspapers, journals, documents, archives, and other traditional and digital resources and makes them available in print, microform, and electronic formats to member institutions through interlibrary loan and electronic delivery. More information about the center and its collections is available on its web site.
