Jesuit Libraries Project

With support from the Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage as well as the CTSDH, the Jesuit Libraries Project, directed by Kyle Roberts, with Kathy Young and Nick Hayward, will reconstitutes a Virtual Library System (VLS): using specially-modified open source integrated library system software, the team will populate the collection with records for each of the titles in an ca. 1875 shelf-list catalogue of St. Ignatius' College (which became Loyola University). Surviving copies of original library books will be recorded within the Loyola Library VLS, making them more accessible to students and researchers.
