A recent chance to re-organize the SJU Archive helped us to organize and label all archival boxes, create a box list and then compose a current finding aid. The Saint Joseph’s University Archives Finding Aid provides an inventory and description of the institutional and organizational records of Saint Joseph’s University dating from 1851-2019. Records include photographs, correspondence, documents, memorabilia, scrapbooks and yearbooks which document the history of the administrative and academic units and activities of SJU’s administration, faculty, staff and students.
Our Finding Aid gives a context for our collection, which includes University history and Catholic, Jesuit, and local history. Reading the finding aid allows researchers to decide whether our materials can help them in their research. Related materials are also listed.
You can access the Finding Aid from the library homepage under Archives and Special Collections.
