The Archives and Special Collections has created SJU Collections Online to make information about the University’s collections more accessible to students, faculty, staff researchers and the public. The database contains records for institutional photographs, collected memorabilia and rare books. More materials will be added on a regular basis.
Take few moments to browse through the virtual collection and learn something new about Saint Joseph’s University’s rich history. For research assistance, or to consult the physical materials represented in the database, email Archives and Special Collections staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make an appointment.
