Experience commencement 100 years ago. See Sister Jean in the early 1970s. Go to church on a boat. Read a letter from Alexander Hamilton. 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.

Political cartoons are entertaining art forms that portray public figures and current events in humorous yet thought-provoking ways. With the current use of memes, are political cartoons a dying art? How will they stay relevant in the future? Join us for a fascinating look at the history and evolution of political cartoons as a genre. British political cartoon historian Tim Benson, Chicago Tribune’s editorial cartoonist Scott Stantis, and local avid political art collector Anthony Mourek will be at Loyola’s downtown campus, to engage in a lively discussion.

Looking for more movie staff picks? We have two more movie recommendations from Loyola University Chicago Libraries’ student interns from Christ The King (CTK) College Prep. Select one of the images below to see either Darrell’s or Dae’Sha’s lists. According to CTK student, Kamille, “I wrote my movie reviews as a fun end-of-the-year project for the library. All the CTK students were asked to do this. It’s good to have me and my coworkers know what type of movies I like; it’s something we can bond over. Each movie was something I wouldn’t mind watching over and over again.”
This recently-released digital text collection includes the doctrines of Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and Jainism from the late 19th century through the 21st century as presented in the writings of Alan Watts, Thich Nhat Hanh, Wendy Doniger, and many more. This collection offers rich primary source material and expands our library’s collection of interfaith studies. Your questions are always welcome. Contact us for assistance and more information about this collection and others on world religions past and present.
Newly available to Loyola researchers seeking insight into the lives and times of American women, look to Women’s Magazine Archive for articles, interviews, editorials, photography, and advertising. Content, dating from the start of the 20th century, comes from magazines such as Good Housekeeping (noted for its focus on family life and the home), Ladies’ Home Journal (which featured writing by Chicago’s own Jane Addams), Essence (created for African American women), and Redbook (once known for its championing of women’s rights). Your questions are always welcome. Contact us for assistance and more information about this collection and other historical magazines and newspapers.
Newly accessible to Loyola researchers in a convenient, searchable online format: Complete content from the Washington Post (1877-2002) and the Wall Street Journal (1889-2001). Winner of more than 60 Pulitzer Prizes for categories from Editorial Writing to National and International Reporting, the Washington Post is widely known as one of America’s most influential newspapers. The paper’s prominence reached historic proportions when it led revelations exposing the Watergate Scandal. Discover more of the Post’s rich history and then start searching! The Wall Street Journal may be best known for its emphasis on business and finance but its coverage of news, politics, and government make its contents worthwhile well beyond business and economic history. Browse or search, using a variety of limits and features, or learn more about the newspaper before getting started. Your questions are always welcome.
