Catholic Newspapers Committee

Committee Charge

The Catholic Newspapers Committee is charged with establishing a program that will identify, locate, document, preserve and digitize North American Catholic newspapers, working systematically and collaboratively with CRRA* members, digitizing partners,* scholars, and other associations. Digitizing Partners provide critical support through the active digitization of priority papers.*


2018/19 Goals:

  • Create a teaching module that sources Catholic newspapers and the CNA. 
  • Contribute to creation and implementation of a marketing plan for the CNA (Board). 
  • Identify grant opportunities, contribute to proposals, promote collaborative proposals and encourage digitization of partner-held Catholic newspaper collections. 
  • Foster the development of new partnerships to expand content in the CNA.
