The purpose of the Jesuit Libraries Provenance Project is to reveal the history of the Catholic intellectual heritage at Loyola. This Flickr site will create a participatory community of bibliographers, academics, private collectors, alumni, and students interested in the origins of Jesuit-held books. Our hope is that this undertaking will serve to reconstruct important aspects of the Catholic intellectual tradition by identifying past donors and virtually reuniting dispersed collections. Commenting and tagging functions within the site give users the opportunity to contribute their own knowledge. Not only will this site provide a visual index of the rich variety of works in a late nineteenth-century Jesuit Library, but it will also become a site for conversations about the importance of print to the Catholic intellectual heritage.
