Research Collections

CARL member libraries play a key role in helping a majority of Canada’s university researchers to achieve discovery and innovation by providing the library resources and services they need: about 88% of sponsored research occurs at CARL member institutions. These libraries collectively manage collections of over 43 million books and 1.3 million periodical titles (whether paper or electronic)—among many other resources—in support of research, teaching, and learning.
