Unlike other archival workshops, the sessions focus on unique records found in the archives of men’s and women’s religious communities. These document the communities themselves, the evolution of Catholicism in the United States and its impact on educational, social and charitable institutions that shaped the nation’s history. 
The program is directed by professional religious archivists Malachy McCarthy and Colleen McFarland Rademaker. Learning activities include lectures, practice applications a religious archive tour and opportunities for sharing and discussion.
Registrations are now being accepted. The deadline for registration is June 17, 2016.
