Xavier University of Louisiana Archives & Special Collections is the University's primary resource center where you can find historic and rare items you likely won't find anywhere else in the world. We assist everyone who are looking to use our collections, such as:
The University Archives specializes in documenting the history of XULA's students, alumni, faculty, staff, departments, and administration. This includes photographs, university publications, letters, meeting records, old policies, handbooks, student scrapbooks, and more.
The Special Collections maintains historic photographs, manuscripts, newspapers, rare ephemera, catholic artifacts and relics, and numerous items relating to African-American history and black Catholics, especially in New Orleans.
The Rare Books Department focuses on collecting rare, limited edition, and/or out-of-print books, artists' books, rare Bibles, and historic encyclopedias.
