On December 9, 2005, Fr. General appointed a small commission — composed of Herbert Scholz, Herbert Oeynck, and Timothy Lenchak — to assist in the rearrangement of the Generalate Archives. The Generalate Archives comprise the following sections: (1) Current Archive, (2) Founder's Archive, (3) Historical Archive, (4) SVD Authors' Library, (5) Photo Archive.

In the course of time the commission was asked to also include in its work the following related entities although these are not directly part of the Generalate Archives: (1) Generalate Documentation Room, (2) Generalate Library, (3) Generalate Publications Department, (4) Collegio Library.

The Collegio Library and the SVD Authors' Library use a common database for better search results. The first call number of each bibliography item should tell customers which library/location the item belongs to. All libraries should be made available on our intranet. (cf. SVD Generalate Administrative Handbook 2007 ed. pp. 56, 73; 2017 ed. pp. 59, 76)

This website provides librarians and users online access to

  • the SVD Authors' Library - First Call Number "v"
  • the Collegio Library - First Call Number "c"

Note: In November 2017, the House Council adopted for the Collegio Library another online system/program in the care of Fr. Kieran Jianjun Sun. The "c" bibliography items catalogued by Fr. Miguel Yasis up to 2013 (330 items) will be eventually transferred to the system/program of the Collegio Library.
