Sharing expertise

CERL’s members include most of the major specialist rare books research libraries of Europe. Their accumulated expertise is available to be shared with colleagues. Some of this is available publicly; some is shared in the members’ forum which can only be accessed by subscribing members of the Consortium.

Many of these libraries have made information about their expertise available to other CERL members by submitting the names of specialists and their primary specialisms. These data are not made publicly available here but Members can obtain information from the Member Area.
