Environment
Founded in 1870, Loyola is one of the nation's largest Jesuit, Catholic universities. Loyola is a private, not-for-profit institution consisting of eleven schools and colleges with four locations in Chicagoland and a campus in Rome, Italy, providing educational services to approximately 17,000 students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs. The University enjoys robust enrollments, an outstanding reputation for the quality of its teaching, and an increasing level of research activity. Recognizing Loyola's excellence in education, U.S. News and World Report has consistently ranked Loyola among the "top national universities" in its annual publications. Like the University itself, Loyola's libraries and archives are in a growth mode with new facilities and initiatives, such as the eCommons, Loyola's institutional repository. With the opening of the $32 million Information Commons on the Lakeshore Campus in 2008, Loyola has one of the finest and most advanced academic library facilities in the Midwest. In addition to the Information Commons, the University Libraries includes Cudahy Library and the Library Storage Facility (LSF) at the main campus in Rogers Park, the Lewis Library at the Water Tower Campus in downtown Chicago, and a library at the John Felice Rome Center in Italy. The University Libraries has an annual materials budget exceeding $6 million. Collections include nearly two million volumes, 550 databases, 60,000 journals, and a variety of physical and streaming media resources. The Libraries sponsors frequent cultural programs for the Loyola community and its neighbors. Established in 1994, the Women and Leadership Archives collects, preserves, and makes available permanently valuable records that document women's lives, roles, and contributions. The WLA grew out of the need to care for the records of Mundelein College, which affiliated with Loyola in 1991, and expanded to collect papers of women leaders and women's organizations.
