Below are links to projects relating to Loyola and Jesuit history in which the Loyola University Chicago Archives & Special Collections participates.

Crossing and Dwellings

On October 16–19, 2014, Loyola University Chicago held a conference marking the bicentennial of the restoration of the Society of Jesus in 1814. The conference's goal was to locate the works of the restored Jesuits—and their colleagues from women's religious orders—within the specific experiential context of building the American nation.

Jesuit Libraries Project

Directed by Assistant Professor of History Kyle Roberts, PhD, the goal of this project is to virtually recreate the first library catalog (1875) of St. Ignatius College. During the 2012–2013 academic year undergraduates worked on digitizing the catalog, researching the history of the St. Ignatius/Loyola University library, and tracking down surviving volumes from the catalog in Special Collections, the general library stacks, and library storage.
