The Xavier University of Louisiana Archives & Special Collections maintains and preserves a unique collection of manuscripts, university records, photographs, ephemera, and rare books. In support of Xavier University’s mission “to contribute to the promotion of a more just and humane society,” our collections are comprised of a wide range of formats, with a focus on African Americans, Black Catholics, New Orleans Communities, Louisiana History, and the Gulf Coast Region. Our finding aids and instructional services provide an entry to discover our holdings and we greatly encourage students, scholars, and the general public to explore the Gulf Coast Region through our unique collections.
