Quaker & Special Collections
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Quaker & Special Collections reading room is closed. Please inquire before planning any research trips. Outside researchers are welcome to continue making research and reproduction requests, but these cannot be fulfilled until staff are again working on campus.
Quaker & Special Collections contains Haverford College’s rare books, manuscripts, and the college archives. We seek to collect, preserve, and make available materials which serve the research and teaching needs of the Haverford community as well as the wider scholarly community.
Our world-renowned Quaker collections, which illuminate Quaker life, faith, and practice from the earliest days of the Society of Friends to the present is the highlight of the collection, while our varied collecting foci provide many opportunities for researchers.
