These are just a few of the many digital collections available on a new platform for digital collections at the University Libraries. This tool, called Preservica, allows us to manage digital collections for the long run by keeping secure backups and helping us to migrate formats over time as software changes. We have completed a multi-year migration process to bring our digital collections into the new platform, which included some reorganization and updates to the collection information, so you can find even more exiting artifacts of Loyola’s past as well as Catholic and United States history.
Thanks to some milestone years, our collections are currently expanding. Both University Archives and the Women and Leadership Archives are actively digitizing many more photos for the upcoming celebration of Loyola’s 150th anniversary and the WLA’s 25th anniversary. Check back frequently to find new additions.
You can find many more digital collections and digital exhibits, as well as scholarship produced by Loyola faculty and students in our complete list of digital collections.
