Libraries Featured in Online Exhibit on Women Religious
Photographs and holy cards from the Marian Library and U.S. Catholic Special Collection are featured in the online exhibit, Treasures from the Catholic Research Resource Alliance: Women Religious, through October 2013. The exhibit highlights the spirituality and courage of women religious who serve as health and educational professionals, and as missionaries and social workers, and who live their lives as part of a community of faith. Women religious is one of the major collection themes of the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) and the exhibit includes rare and unique resources that are available as bibliographic citations and finding aids in the CRRA’s consortial database, the Catholic Portal.
