Based in Washington, DC, the mission of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is "to expand access to information, however recorded and preserved, as a public good." Not surprisingly, they do an excellent job of fulfilling this mission, and persons interested in their work will appreciate learning about their website and its many offerings. The materials on their site are contained within four primary sections, including "Publications", "Activities", "Awards", and "News". The "Publications" area is a rich source of information for persons working in the fields of archive management, information science, and other related fields. Here visitors will find their annual reports, their in-house bimonthly newsletter, and full-length reports. Visitors can view a chronological list containing all of their reports, or they can look through thematic sections, such as "Managing Economic Challenges" and "Perspectives on the Evolving Library". Aspiring scholars will also want to look over their fellowships and awards, as there may be one that may be used to further their own scholarly work.
