This catalogue (finding aid), is not a digital repository, and there are no digitised documents, or log in facility. Please contact with any archival queries or appointments (September 2023). AtoM (Access to Memory) is a fully web-based archival description application that is based on ICA (International Council on Archives) standards. In line with Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu regulations, there is no access to material later than 9 October 1958 (the death of Pope Pius XII).
