Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries
LocationColorado; Wyoming
The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries was established in 1974. One major purpose of the Alliance is to share resources and provide the best terms and price to its members by group purchasing.[1] Projects of the Alliance over the years include:
Prospector also provides a faster and more convenient mechanism for interlibrary loans from member libraries, which can be ordered by patrons directly from the catalog.
CARL and UnCover
CARL started as a character-based access system to resources, in particular catalogs of participating libraries as they were being computerized, available via dialup long before the advent of World Wide Web. The CARL system eventually included a subset of Dialog. The flagship CARL product was UnCover, an article index database. UnCover provides free article search and access to the article text for a fee. CARL was spun off in 1988[5] into a for-profit company, later owned by Knight-Ridder[6] and then Dialog[7] before becoming briefly Uncover, Inc. In 2000, UnCover has been acquired by Ingenta[8] and is now accessible as a part of Ingentaconnect.[9]
