This site brings together finding aids for manuscript and archival research materials held by the Archives at the Library of the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, the Biddle Law Library, the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and the University of Pennsylvania Museum Archives. A supplement to Penn's online catalog Franklin, this compendium provides detailed inventories as well as administrative and descriptive information for collections of personal papers, institutional records, and primary source materials compiled around a particular subject or medium. Discovery through faceted searching can be limited to a single repository or include all participating repositories. Printer-friendly as well as PDF versions of the finding aids are available from the site.
This union catalog presents finding aids and not facsimiles of manuscripts, images, and other archival materials. Unless specifically noted, the holdings described within the guides are physically available in the respective reading rooms of the participating repositories, and not digitally available through the web.
Some archival repositories at Penn that do not currently participate in this site include the Architectural Archives, the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing, the Pennsylvania Hospital Archives, and the University Archives. Please visit their pages for more information about their collections.
