Teaching and Study Resources
Describes the department's print and/or microfilm holdings of national Catholic directories for Canada, Mexico, and the United States and Jesuit province catalogs worldwide since the 19th century, which aid in illuminating some Marquette collections, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records. The Index to the Catholic Directories for the United States with Appended Countries, 1817, 1822, 1833- provides further information and navigational assistance.
Revision in-progress, 2017-; volumes 1 and 5 completed. Through repository-based entries, Marquette's Native Guide provides referrals to other repositories and further illuminates the content of several Marquette special collections (e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions) where many of these institutions are represented as subjects. The repository entries include contact information and brief descriptions of these records, which identify the Native and Catholic groups represented. For the entries of Catholic groups (e.g. parishes, dioceses, religious communities), institutional chronologies are included, which further illuminate their records.
