Catalog of Collections

The online catalogue is a searchable database of collections located throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Most are held by smaller historical societies without online catalogues; hence, they are "hidden" collections. The database allows reserachers to search by keyword, geographic location, name and genre and tells where the collections is housed and how to contact the archive for access.
