The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) has centers in a number of countries (including Cambodia, Cyprus, Egypt, Turkey, and Yemen) and is dedicated to providing a base for American scholars undertaking significant research in these various host countries. On the Council site, interested parties can learn about its various services and the different fellowship opportunities it are responsible for overseeing, such as the Andrew W. Mellon East-Central European Research Fellows program. Perhaps the most compelling resource on their site is the link to the Digital Library for International Research (DLIR),which was begun in 1999 by the CAORC and the American Institute for Yemeni Studies. Through this site, visitors can look at the combined holdings of these various libraries and peruse a number of related materials, such as various books in a number of African languages and the Foreign Photo-Archive database.
