Mercyhurst University dedicated the Helen Boyle Memorial Archive in honor of Sister Joan Chittister on its campus.
Sister Joan has authored 50 books and lectured all over the world.
Mercyhurst partnered with Penn State University and the Erie Benedictine Community to preserve her archives.
The main archive will be housed at Penn State's main campus, but archive rooms are also located at Mercyhurst and Mount St. Benedict.
A lecture series acknowledging Sister Joan's contributions will kick off tonight featuring author Tom Roberts.
Doors open at 7:30 in the Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center
