Harmful Descriptive Language
Haverford College Libraries aim to create descriptions that are inclusive and respectful to those who are represented in and use our collections.
Copyright can be complex, and as a result complying with copyright can be daunting at times. The Libraries have created a Copyright Resource Guide as an aid in navigating common academic issues and situations.
The Haverford College Libraries invites students, faculty, staff, and other members of the Haverford community to propose and produce exhibitions in the library that support the teaching, learning, and research goals of the College.
