Librarian Profiles: Learn About the Winners of the 2013 CRL Primary Source Awards

The new issue (Spring 2013) of FOCUS on Global Resources from the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) offers a look at the winners (and winning projects) of the 2013 Primary Source Awards.

From an Introduction by Bernard F. Reilly, Jr.: President, CRL:

This issue of FOCUS on Global Resources highlights the projects selected for recognition in this year’s Center for Research Libraries Primary Source Awards program. CRL created the program in 2009 to promote awareness and use of primary historical evidence in research and teaching. Identifying and recognizing innovative uses of primary sources helps us to better understand the practices and the needs of scholars today.

The projects featured here were selected from a competitive pool nominated by faculty and librarians at CRL institutions. CRL’s Collections and Services Policy Committee, chaired by Dan Hazen of Harvard University, reviewed all submissions and identified the top projects in three areas: access, research, and teaching. The projects recognized this year illustrate a variety of approaches to mining the primary evidence of history.
