Archives and Special Collections

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.
