About the CDIRM project
In 2009 the American Institute for Yemeni Studies (AIYS), acting on behalf of partner American
overseas research centers (AORCs) and their umbrella organization, the Council of American Overseas
Research Centers (CAORC), was awarded a four-year matching grant by the U.S. Department of Education's
and Cooperation for Foreign Information Access" (TICFIA) program to support a collaborative project
to digitize selected collections of international research resources held by international partners in
order to provide access to this rich vein of previously inaccessible material via the internet. Work
on the project, known as the Cooperative Digitization of International Research Materials (CDIRM), will start October 1, 2009.
On this site, which is currently still in the design stages, you will eventually find information concerning
the purpose of the project, as well as assorted information bearing on its current status, accessible through the links at left.
As digital materials created by the project become ready for public access, they will become part of the
databases and text collections maintained by the Digital Library for International Research
(DLIR), a program of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.
