Pepperdine University Libraries is now a member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL). This membership significantly widens the scope of research materials available to the Pepperdine community (students, faculty, and staff).
More than 200 libraries in the U.S., Canada, India, Germany, and Hong Kong are members of CRL, a non-profit international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries.
Pepperdine’s membership provides free access to CRL’s collections via interlibrary loan. Members of the Pepperdine community may request unlimited items from the collection; loan periods are six months and borrowers have unlimited renewals unless the item has been recalled by CRL.
The Center for Research Libraries provides access to vast collections and electronic resources. Pepperdine researchers have access to:
Approximately five million items, including the largest circulating collection of newspapers in North America, 38,000 foreign journals and 800,000 foreign dissertations. Major microfilm and paper collections from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Europe, South Asia, Southeast Asia; and more.
No-cost document delivery of articles from the Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering and Technology‘s extensive collection of serials.
The LLMC-Digital database of over 51 million pages and 100,000 volumes of at-risk primary legal and government publications.
Demand purchases: CRL acquires materials at no charge on request for researchers at CRL libraries in three areas: foreign dissertations, newspapers, and archival materials.
Individualized consultations on research materials available through CRL’s User Services Liaison.
