The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is a United States-based nonprofit consortium of academic and independent research libraries that preserves and promotes access to primary documentation and evidence for research. With this award, CRL is supporting three Mexican universities to create the Repository for Documentation on Disappearances in Mexico. The Repository will hold information gathered by a range of actors, including victims and their families, human rights lawyers and activists, and journalists, and will include formal and informal print, visual, audio, and digital evidence that can be used to facilitate access to truth and justice. The repository aims to provide Mexico with tools for preserving this documentation for future use.
