Paul V. Galvin Library Joins Center for Research Libraries

Paul V. Galvin Library has joined the Center for Research Libraries, an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries. Membership complements, but does not replace, the library’s existing collection by providing access to five million books, journals, documents and newspapers.

Collection Strengths

  • More than 800,000 non-U.S. dissertations
  • The largest circulating collection of newspapers in North America – more than 16,000 newspaper titles from all world regions and from every U.S. state – mainstream dailies and opposition papers, rare publications from international conflict zones, U.S. ethnic titles, and early African-American newspapers
  • Area Studies: major collections of news, government documents, and archives from Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and South Asia
