Collection Overview


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 These consist of published and unpublished materials usually received by the SCRC along with donated manuscript collections.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.

Additions to the Urban Archives Pamphlet Collection contains pamphlets acquired in the last few years. These materials have not received the extensive processing that was devoted to pamphlets in the Urban Archives Pamphlet Collection due to staff constraints. The pamphlets received a box/item location number and are only listed under a subject heading. Pamphlets in this collection are filed by subject.
