  • Mission Santa Clara Manuscript Collection

    Posted Monday, June 16, 2014 at 4:15 p.m.

    Unveiling the Mission Santa Clara Manuscript Collection: New Guide Available for Research

    The Mission Santa Clara Manuscript Collection Processing Project in Archives & Special Collections has organized and described the Mission Santa Clara manuscripts and created an initial finding aid for the Collection, which has been published on the Online Archive of California.

    Mission Santa Clara’s valuable Manuscript Collection consists of hundreds of manuscripts primarily written and collected by the Franciscan missionaries from the founding of the Mission in 1777 until the arrival of the Jesuits in 1851.  The manuscripts deal not only with the missionaries’ spiritual endeavors, but with various aspects of daily life at Mission Santa Clara.  The Manuscript Collection includes sacramental records, account books, annual reports, governmental and ecclesiastical correspondence, choirbooks, and instructions on wool-processing, health care and cuisine, among others.

    In addition to the creation of the finding aid, the Mission Santa Clara Manuscript Collection Processing Project will digitize and translate a selection of its documents.

    Thank you to all who participated in this year’s LibQUAL+ survey – the best response ever.

    Our initial analysis of your responses is now available. The results include what you like about the University Library and what you want. You will also find information about what we are planning, and comparisons to previous surveys. If you want more detail, links to the complete report plus a discipline analysis report are accessible from the home tab.

    As you will see, we are already implementing a number of your suggestions and exploring ways to implement other changes.

    If you have any questions or comments about these results, please contact Paul Neuhaus, University Library Assessment Officer, at pneuhaus@scu.edu or 408-554-5431.
