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 will hold a conference marking the bicentennial of the restoration of the Society of Jesus in 1814. The conference aims at locating 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, Ph.D., 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 have 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. In fall 2013 Dr. Roberts will teach an Advanced Digital Methods course where students build on the work already done and begin building the virtual catalog.
