Coherent Digital reaches major agreement with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL)

Over 40 CRL affiliated institutions recently agreed to become founding institutional members of Policy Commons.  This level of financial commitment means that medium-size CRL institutions will receive substantial additional discounts, and Coherent unlocks complimentary access for over 70 small CRL institutions.

Lenny Rogers, Director of Sales at Coherent Digital, said, “We’re grateful to CRL and its membership for their enthusiastic support of the database.  The open version of Policy Commons is already in use by tens of thousands of students and researchers around the world. This agreement gives premium content, unlimited searching, and additional features to almost half the CRL membership”.

CRL members can find out more about the arrangement directly from CRL or by e-mailing
