We offer telephone books from many U.S. cities concentrating heavily on Pennsylvania. Our collection also includes information about employment, careers and colleges and universities nationwide, as well as current financial aid information including scholarships, fellowships, grants and loans. The Robertson Sheet Music Collection contains original scores from Broadway musicals dating from 1895-1956.
Our Pennsylvania Collection contains histories of most Pennsylvania counties, regimental histories, photographs, yearbooks and extensive collections on the development of the lumber, railroad and petroleum industries, with a heavy emphasis on Pennsylvania. We also offer a major collection of local historical genealogical materials including microfilm of local newspapers dating from 1824 and U.S. census information from 1790 to 1930.
