  • Center for Research Libraries Global Resources Network

"As a repository of research materials with scholarly value, the Center for Research Libraries occasionally receives proposals from commercial firms seeking to digitize these materials for sale or subscription. As a general principle, repositories that hold public-domain and/or non-proprietary materials of scholarly value strive to make those works freely available on the open Internet. However, the Center must also strike a balance between its interest in maximizing access to and use of its research resources; its equally legitimate interest in encouraging investments in the digitization, dissemination, and long-term curation of its holdings; and its need to provide an appropriate return on its member libraries' investment in collections."
