Diversify your collection using Resources for College Libraries

Benchmark data, demonstrate value, and build a more inclusive collection using Resources for College Libraries (RCL).

Offering more than 125 disciplines and over 90,000 essential titles, RCL helps you build a stronger, more inclusive collection. With RCL, libraries can:

  • Find peer-reviewed materials to support inclusive collection-building, liaison work, and outreach
  • Gather data to demonstrate value and support accreditation, reporting, and fiscal planning
  • Assess and benchmark collection holdings using interdisciplinary subjects like African American Studies, GLBT Studies, Native American Studies, and more with RCL and the Bowker Book Analysis System (BBAS)

The interdisciplinary RCL subjects in BBAS were incredibly useful for our diversity collection assessment project. LC classification can be problematic when looking at interdisciplinary topics….but BBAS pulls it all together in one click and provides a more comprehensive and holistic picture of what’s in our collection.
