The Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) is a non-profit organization comprised of 50 Catholic colleges, universities, seminaries, and religious congregations. The CRRA's Catholic Portal makes discoverable a collaboratively curated collection of unique and rare Catholic materials in all formats, freely available to all. Now in its tenth year of development, this collaborative, open source digital humanities project continues to advance CRRA's mission to provide enduring access to Catholic research resources in the Americas.

In response to user needs and with increased technological possibilities, the Portal has evolved into a robust discovery system, incorporating deep indexing and discovery of finding aids across aggregated content; text mining applications; an open source solution for producing in-house or shareable EADs; free online tutorials; and cooperative collection building and digitization. Emphasis will be on how the Portal functions, its use, development and prime movers. See the freely available Catholic Portal: https://www.catholicresearch.org/.  Ample time will be allotted for discussion.
