Scholarly Resource Development
Among our other initiatives, CRCC is engaged in creating accessible resources for scholars interested in religion. CRCC, in partnership with the USC Digital Library, works to create online repositories of primary research materials for scholars interested in religion. Three such projects include the PCRI archiving project, which is coordinating the international development of digitized primary research resources for the study of global Pentecostal and charismatic religion; the Internet Mission Photography Archive, which continues to grow and to explore sources for external funding; and the Gospel Music History Archive project, which seeks funding to create an electronic repository of primary research materials for scholarship about this unique American musical form.
