We invite you to give us feedback on a database we are looking into purchasing: Index Religiosus
The trial for Index Religiosus can be reached here
Index Religiosus is an international bibliography covering Religion, Church History, Canon Law, Old and New Testaments, Sacramentology and Liturgy, influential figures, Art History, Music, Architecture, and Hagiography. It contains over 500,000 book and article citations with links to full-text articles where available.
This database is replacing the print and online versions of the ETL Elenchus bibliographicus
and annual bibliography from the Revue d’Histoire Ecclesiastique, which will no longer be published.

Three hundred early eighteenth-century French and Latin titles from the Albani collection, many of them the only exemplars in the United States, are now cataloged and available to researchers in Rare Books and Special Collections (214 Mullen). A sampling of their content may be found at the RBSC blog: http://ascendonica.blogspot.com/
The MARC records for 3,842 titles found in the Library of Latin Texts (Series A and B) have been added to the library catalog. Special thanks to Kristen Frederickson, Information Processing Librarian, for uploading the records.
You can search the catalog using a title search or a keyword search using ‘Library of Latin Texts’. Each catalog record contains a link directly to the work in the Library. Most of the works come from the print series, Corpus Christianorum Series Latina and Continuatio Mediaevalis as well as selections from the Teubneriana series.
The American Religious Identification Survey 2008 came out this week. Highlights include a decline in the number of Catholics in the Northeast and a corresponding increase in the Southwest and an increase in the number of secular individuals from 14.2 % in 2001 to 15% in 2008. The survey was conducted by the Program on Public Values at Trinity College in Connecticut. The chief investigators are Barry A. Kosmin and Ariela Keysar. The full report is here.
