Benefits of Membership


Foremost among the benefits is the ability to better support faculty and students in their teaching, learning and research, and to advance the institutional mission. Additionally, members benefit from making their resources visible and integral in documenting the Catholic heritage. Members benefit from their leadership roles in shaping the Catholic portal and the dynamic network of institutions committed to ensuring Catholic research resources are accessible now and in the future to scholars worldwide.
