The Fairman Rogers Collection at the University of Pennsylvania consists of over 1,000 titles, many of which come from the personal library of Fairman Rogers (1833-1900). A Penn alumnus (AB 1853, AM 1856), he was a co-founder of the School of Veterinary Medicine, a professor of civil engineering (1855-1871) at Penn, and an internationally recognized horseman. The collection was started with a major gift from Rogers and grew substantially over the past hundred years through the generosity of many donors. The books range from the sixteenth through the mid-twentieth century, with the greatest number published in the nineteenth century. The collection reveals Rogers' own varied interest in horses.

The World War I Pamphlet Collection at the University of Pennsylvania consists of just over 400 titles drawn from the general stacks at Van Pelt library. These pamphlets, many of them brittle and no longer fit for circulation, all deal with the First World War, its origins or aftermath. Out of this collection, more than 200 have been digitized and are made available here in Print at Penn. The remaining titles can be accessed digitally through the Hathi Trust. Published in nine languages, the selection of pamphlets includes political tracts, government publications, fund-raising brochures, and periodicals. Many of these items were given to the University of Pennsylvania Library by the Philadelphia attorney and politician James Montgomery Beck (1861-1936) who wrote and spoke often about the conflict. Given their rarity and ephemeral nature, the majority of items available in facsimile here are not available online in any other venue.
