Special Collections + Archives

Located on the third floor of the Monroe Library, Special Collections and Archives preserves materials related to the history of Louisiana and to the South, the Society of Jesus, and the history of Loyola University New Orleans. The collection derives much of its identity from its Jesuit holdings which include the Archives of the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus and the personal papers of notable Jesuits. This Jesuit identity, reflected in Loyola’s curriculum, laid the foundation for the collection’s expansion into such diverse areas as social justice, environmental activism, public affairs, literature, and the arts.

Digital Archives

Digitized materials from Loyola University New Orleans’ Special Collections and Archives are available in the LOUISiana Digital Library and the Internet Archive’s American Libraries LYRASIS collection.

Music Collections

The music collections and services are housed primarily on the first floor of the J. Edgar & Louise S. Monroe Library and make up the principal collection of music materials at Loyola University New Orleans. In addition to traditional music curricula, we support multi-disciplinary programs such as Music Therapy, Music Education, and Music Industry Studies.
