“Advancing Catholic Scholarship” Symposium at Duquesne Nov. 9-10

Colleagues,

The registration deadline for this CRRA/Duquesne sponsored event is this Friday, October 15, 2011.  We are pleased that many of you have already registered for the event and if you have thought about registering, please do so now.  There is no fee to register.

The event features Catholic scholars, archivists, and librarians gathering together to consider the state of Catholic scholarship and how we can act together to advance and enhance freely available global access and discovery of important Catholic resources. The event will take place at Duquesne University (Pittsburgh) on Nov. 9-10.

We encourage librarians, scholars, and archivists interested in learning more about opportunities to make scholarly resources accessible to join in and meet new friends and colleagues.

A full roster of events and registration information is available at http://bit.ly/Duquesne_Symposium .   The registration deadline is this Friday, October 15, 2011.

We hope that you will join us in what promises to be a stimulating and productive conversation about Catholic scholarly research and the ways in which librarians and archivists support this research.
