Haverford College
Quaker and Special Collections

We have a new home! The Quaker & Special Collections homepage has moved to its new home. While you familiarize yourself with the new site, we will leave this one up for a bit longer.

Special Collections serves to advance scholarship and to further teaching, research and service by acquiring, arranging, describing, preserving, interpreting, promoting, and providing access to the College's unique and rare materials. The principal collections include the world-renowned Quaker Collection, college archives, rare books and manuscripts, and fine art (Mission adopted October 19, 2007).

Belongings are stored in a secure area and we ask that only paper, pencil, and a laptop computer, if desired, be brought into the reading room. Our reading room is enabled with a wireless internet connection.
