PACSCL – the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries, Inc. – is a group of 35 institutions that collect and make available weird and wonderful collections of rare books, archives, manuscript collections, and photographs that document not only the history of the greater Philadelphia area, but also the history of…everything? “Everything” isn’t being cheeky. You can find information about women’s history, science, the environment, religion, anthropology, art, medicine, shipbuilding, chemistry, music and more, all within the collections of PACSCL members.
