Special Collections contains numerous diverse collections including WCU libraries’ collection of rare books; various 18th and 19th century horticultural and botanical works from the libraries of William Darlington and the Chester County Cabinet of Natural Sciences; the West Chester University Archives and several other archival and manuscript collections.
West Chester University’s Digital Collections contains scanned or photographed images and PDFs of unique objects held in Francis Harvey Green Library’s Special Collections and Archives or in the Philip’s Autograph Library. The aim of these collections is to increase access and to promote the preservation of the fragile and highly used items in the collections. The Digital Collections are continually growing as more objects and materials are discovered and digitized.
