Large numbers of historical books, pamphlets, newspapers and manuscripts are now available online, some through free sites and some only through subscriptions.
The contents of the free sites can often be found through Google searches, while the contents of the subscription sites can usually be found only by going directly to the site. Listed below are some major historical collections to which Bryn Mawr, Haverford or Swarthmore subscribe.
For a more complete list of online primary sources, see the Tri-College Libraries page for History-Primary Sources .
Many archives now have guides to their collections on the web, which means that it is often easiest to find the historical records of an organization or person by doing a Google search on the name and adding the word "archive."
The Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore libraries all have Special Collections departments with extensive historical collections.
