HCLA houses more than 400 collections, including oral histories, photographs, newspapers, leaflets, pamphlets, sound recordings, films, maps, and posters, dating from 1650 to the 1980s, documenting the history of Pennsylvania and U.S. industrial society.
If you have not used a special collections library before, please note that we are open for fewer hours than some parts of the library, and that you must use our materials in our reading room. Some materials are stored offsite, and some materials are restricted. For more information, please visit our brief online tutorial and tour.
