During the weeks of August 4-8 and 18-22, 2014 the Archives, Walsh Library, will be closed to researchers so that we can accomplish some work in the vault that we cannot do when school is in full session in the Fall and Spring semesters. This work will help us to improve our service. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.
The Msgr. William Noé Field Archives and Special Collections Center has been the beneficiary of a more detailed information sharing presence through the standardization and uploading a large number finding aids. The creation of a set of new research guides (or LibGuides) that detail Archives & Special Collections in general and Finding Aids in particular have been added for researcher reference. These reference tools will be consistently updated. More information can be found via this link- http://shu.libguides.com/cat.php?cid=55869 <Archives & Special Collections LibGuides>
In addition, more information on recently constructed LibGuides such as: “Catholic Studies: Primary Sources and Special Collections” and other news items from our Center can be discovered under Blog Feeds on the right side of our current Homepage http://www.shu.edu/academics/libraries/archives/index.cfm <Archives & Special Collections Homepage>
The Archives & Special Collections Center was represented with a display of various materials from our collection with particular emphasis on the evolution of academics and student life at our annual homecoming event University Weekend at Seton Hall University in early October 2012.
Visitation to our repository has topped the 105,000 mark since counter records have been measured beginning in 2007.
The New Jersey Catholic Historical Commission has a new homepage/blog site to compliment its Facebook presence. We welcome visitation and contributions to our efforts in the days ahead. This web presence includes digitized images of our foundation documents and newsletters through the years. In addition, there is a section for becoming a Friend of the Commission as we welcome participation from anyone with an interest in Catholic history in New Jersey.
