The Center for Research on Information Access was established in early 1995 to act as a vehicle for linking different projects on the Columbia campus involved in developing and using digital technology. Our initial funding comes from the Office of the Vice-Provost under the Virtual Information Initiative. CRIA has received funding from national funding agencies, foundations, and industry.
CRIA is committed to facilitating connections between projects for exploring new technologies, developing new electronically available resources, and improving instruction, which are all essential facets of information access. CRIA is housed within the Columbia University Libraries with links to the Computer Science Department.
