  • Catholic Research Resources Alliance :: Background
    Are there editorials and if so how to describe the outlook on some specific issue Is the news primarily about the United States or are European Vatican international issues reported How are major issues such as the Civil War the Homestead Strike of 1892 the Great Depression the assassination of John Kennedy etc reported In another approach I may ask students to compare a known progressive paper such as NCR with a conservative paper such as OSV on a specific issue to help them discern what distinguishes those labels Our department has a senior thesis requirement so I have generally advised between four to eight of these research and writing projects each year which all address a general theme such as commemoration or this year tradition and transformation For one student who was researching the Sisters of Mercy in Pittsburgh she was able to locate information in digitized Irish newspapers as well as in the local Pittsburgh Catholic digitized Students love to click to their sources rather than going through hard bound newspaper issues in the stacks Dr Paula Kane Marous Chair of Catholic Studies University of Pittsburgh Breakthroughs in digitization and computing technologies have led to a revolution in the researching writing and teaching of history As historians we benefit from this new age called digital humanities where we can search for every trace of a person relate themes across documents and write history rich with almost forgotten details Technological advances have made a vast body of historical newspapers and documents instantly accessible to scholars and students on their desktops laptops tablets and phones Sadly the Catholic Church may find itself less not more visible in these histories of the United States The leading online sources such as the Library of Congress huge database of historical American newspapers are largely focused on municipal and trade newspapers with Catholic newspapers conspicuously under represented But think how much more significant it would be if all Catholic newspapers were online ensuring the Catholic tradition experiences and views of Catholics continue to be part of the American dialog Absent from the net Catholics may well soon be invisible in history Dr Timothy Meagher Associate Professor of History Curator of American Catholic History Collection and University Archivist The Catholic University of America The Archdiocese of New Orleans enthusiastically supports the exciting and incredibly worthy project of the Catholic Research Resources Alliance CRRA to digitize Catholic newspaper archives of 12 major dioceses across the U S In New Orleans this digitizing effort will make available at the click of a button nearly 175 years of local Catholic history Given the level of digitization already achieved by secular publications the Catholic Church needs to have its history easily accessible to researchers and interested readers Catholic and non Catholic alike The CRRA digitizing project will allow us to tell our story directly and effectively We are very grateful The Most Reverend Gregory M Aymond Archbishop of New Orleans A digital newspaper archive will make it possible to
