The Special Collections Research Center contains several pamphlet collections. These consist of published and unpublished materials usually received by the SCRC along with donated manuscript collections. The SCRC as a general policy retains only those pamphlets dealing with Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware.
The General Pamphlet Collection contains approximately 10,000 items filed in document boxes and assigned a box/item location number. The inventory below is arranged by title. Separate indices by author and subject are available only in the SCRC reading room.
