Canadian Association of Research Libraries

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) is an organization of research libraries in Canada.

It was established in 1976 and consists of 27 university libraries plus Library and Archives Canada (LAC), Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), and the Library of Parliament.

CARL states its 3 main goals as:

To provide organized leadership for the Canadian research library community in the development of policies and programmes which maintain and improve the cycle of scholarly communication;

To work toward the realization of a national research library resource-sharing network in the areas of collection development, preservation and access; and

To increase the capacity of individual member libraries to provide effective support and encouragement to postgraduate study and research at national, regional, and local levels.

The current President of CARL is Leslie Weir, University of Ottawa.
