Free for All

“Open science is not just about having methods and data and publications open to everyone, but also considering who participates in science. We’re interested in opening the doors of science to everybody, because more diverse perspectives among scientists produce more creative and impactful research ideas and findings.” – Professor of Psychology Benjamin Le

DocuLabs 2019: The Bicentennial in Philadelphia

Funded by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, this year's Summer Doculab Fellows researched the history and memory of Philadelphia's 1976 celebration of the American Bicentennial with Visiting Assistant Professor of English Thomas Devaney, who was inspired by the subject following a course he taught on Philadelphia as part of the Tri-Co Philly Program.

Pipeline to the MLB

The skills picked up at Haverford—critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and a sophisticated understanding of data—have turned out to be an ideal fit for key front office roles in Major League Baseball. And as a growing number of alumni get established in the industry, they are opening doors for younger alums.

In the Collection: The Quaker City

First issued issued in serial installments in 1844-45, then published in book form, The Quaker City; Or, the Monks of Monk Hall is part of Lutnick Library’s Quaker fiction collection, which was begun in the 1960s with a donation of 250 books. Now grown to almost 2,000 volumes, the collection includes fiction books that have Quaker characters and/or are written by Quaker authors, and continues to grow as new books appear.

"In the Collection" highlights some of the rare and marvelous items that are part of Lutnick Library's Quaker & Special Collections.

According to Emma J. Lapsansky-Werner, professor emeritus of history and former curator of the Quaker Collection, "the novel helped to solidify notions of urban life and capitalism as cauldrons of sin, greed, and debauchery, and to promote upstanding Quakers as the antithesis of urban low-life."
