Digital Collections

digital collections website logo

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.

Members of the Swarthmore community may have particular interest in digital access to The Halcyon and other student publications. For now, the College Bulletin and the Phoenix may be access using the links, below

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

Additional Digital Collections

Senior Theses and Projects are accessible in a database for Institutional Scholarship and are searchable by author, subject, issue date and title.

Swarthmore College Bulletin

Online editions of the Bulletin from July 2008 until the present may be accessed here. For every previous issue back to the publication's 1935 beginning, browse the Swarthmore College Bulletin Archives.

Archives for Music, Theater, and Dance

Contact Performing Arts Librarian Donna Fournier to learn more about the Swarthmore College Performing Arts Archive which contains digitized sound and video recordings, posters, and programs of student and faculty performances as well as visiting artists' lectures, workshops and concerts from 1985 to the present.

Black Liberation 1969 Archive

The Black Liberation 1969 Archive chronicles the history of the Black student protest movement at Swarthmore College by bringing forward the experiences of the students who organized and executed a series of nonviolent, direct actions and negotiations at the College.
