Along with 23 other area institutions, Haverford is participating in the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries’ “Hidden Collections in the Philadelphia Area: A Consortial Processing and Cataloging Initiative,” a project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by the Council of Library and Information Resources. Led by Project Director Holly Mengel, Project Archivist Courtney Smerz, and a great team of students from Drexel’s iSchool, we enthusiastically agreed to be one of the guinea pigs in helping to get the project off the ground. For the last few weeks, Holly and graduate students Forrest Wright and Leslie O’Neill have been working through several of our “hidden collections” of high research value. We’re pleased to see the progress they’ve made in such a short period of time and the team has been a great addition to the Special Collections crew. We encourage our readers to follow the project blog, which includes posts about the work being done in our collection.
