Hello world!

Welcome to the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) blog!

We are a collaborative effort initiated by eight  Catholic colleges and universities to share their resources electronically with librarians, archivists, researchers, scholars, and the general public interested in the Catholic experience.

For more about the CRRA, see: http://www.catholicresearch.net.

The CRRA is currently engaged in building The Catholic Research Resources Portal.  The Catholic Portal provides access to rare, unique or infrequently held materials in academic libraries and seminaries’ special collections and archives. By electronically bringing together access to resources in many collections, the Portal will create easy, effective and global discovery of Catholic research resources.

We are currently in the midst of a pilot project to add member content into the VuFind interface.  The test database is here: http://vufind.library.nd.edu/.  Have a look around, and let us know what you think.

If you have any questions or comments about the CRRA, post them here or send them to me at plawton@nd.edu.

I am a librarian first and a computer user second. My professional goal is to discover new ways to use computers to provide better library services. I use much of my time here at the University of Notre Dame developing and providing technical support for the Catholic Research Resources Alliance -- the "Catholic Portal".
