The TriCollege Libraries Digital Collections include unique and rare archival collections, manuscripts, publications, ephemera, maps, photographs, and audio visual content, including oral histories, from Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges. The TriCollege Libraries Digital Collections provides an access point for searching the digitized and born-digital collections of three colleges founded on the Quaker traditions of social conscience and thoughtful citizenship.

The collections continue to grow, with new items added on a regular basis.
