The American Research Library: Open to National and Research Libraries Across America
We encourage national and research libraries in America to join us as partners.
Membership of The American Research Library is open to national and research libraries across America. The current membership consists of all of America’s national libraries. We work with both individual libraries and consortia.
Membership of The American Research Library offers an impressive range of benefits. They include:
- Considerable efficiency gains and economies of scale for libraries in data aggregation and distribution to multiple channels for digitised cultural heritage
- Being part of a large-scale linked open dataset that has real impact on scholarship and learning
- Involvement in funded research and development projects
- Representation in a powerful cloud-based research infrastructure for America
- Access to a best practice network of America’s leading libraries. The American Research Library is supported by the Conference of American National Librarians
