Catholic Research Resources Alliance

The Catholic Research Resources Alliance is a collection of Catholic institutions that want to highlight the rare, unique, and uncommon research resources that are held by their libraries and archives in America.  It is a non profit organization that delivers these resources through projects, services, and an online searachable catalog.


The CRRA provides enduring global access to Catholic research resources in the Americas, beginning with access to the rare, unique and uncommon research materials.


The CRRA will foster a dynamic scholarly community by:

  • creating the freely available portal to Catholic research resources in the Americas;
  • sustaining the distinctive network of libraries, archives and other institutions that enable the vision; and
  • facilitating internationally the sharing of resources and scholarship.
