The Carmelitana Collection has just joined LibraryThing! So far, we’ve added our 16th century holdings.

Some catalog records are less extensive than others — and in the interest of expanding description of our materials, we’d like to have your feedback: add comments if you know something about a work or item, and add tags when you think the subject of the work ought to be described in a certain way. We’ll be integrating your feedback into our new online catalog!

We hope that using LibraryThing, with its social cataloging capabilities, will inspire new ways of thinking about and researching the materials in our collection.

For instance, take a look at our tag cloud. I never realized we had so much controversial literature! … Kind of piques your interest, eh?


Your research just got easier: RSS feed created for subjects in Carmelite studies!

Search run daily against records in Academic Search Premier, ATLA Religion Database with ATLASerials, Catholic Periodical and Literature Index, Humanities International Complete, Literary Reference Center, MLA Directory of Periodicals, MLA International Bibliography, New Testament Abstracts, and Old Testament Abstracts.
