Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime?
Cornell University is in the silent phase of a multi-year campaign to raise over 3 billion dollars.

CUL and the DLF/OCLC Digital Registry
CUL in the digital age is among the forerunners in many new developments in library services and technology. One notable sign that this trend is continuing is CUL’s contribution of records—its first but by no means last—to the DLF/OCLC Digital Registry in September 2005. The registry serves as a central location of MARC records that coordinates efforts to digitize resources, including making known the intent to digitize. It enables library staff to identify and evaluate digital versions and makes registry records available for extraction and re-use.
