Spotlight on Harvard Collections

The Harvard College Library is pleased to announce the release of a new digital collection, Pamphlets from the Harvard College Library. As one of a few institutions to have consistently collected pamphlets published during the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries, Harvard holds tens of thousands of pamphlets, covering a broad range of topics. The Pamphlet Digitization Program of the Harvard College Library is a long-term effort to preserve and expand access to these substantial holdings. At this time the on-line collection provides access to over 8,500 fully cataloged and digitized pamphlets in the subject areas of Latin America, Sociology, Word War I and the Boer War. The online collection will be updated periodically as more pamphlets are cataloged and digitized.

See the additional digital collections from the Harvard College Library.
