The Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) collects, preserves, and makes available permanently valuable records of women and women's organizations, which document women's lives, roles, and contributions.
Effective January 18, 2022, the WLA will be open by appointment only to current Loyola students, faculty, and staff, as well as alumni. We are still available to provide remote assistance to researchers, answer reference requests, and accept donations by mail with advance notice. Please contact the WLA at wlarchives@LUC.edu for assistance.

We will be adding more buildings for you to explore in the coming weeks!READ
