Collection Overview and Information for Researchers
The collection name "STC Collection (University of Pennsylvania)" in the online catalog (Franklin) represents an effort to pull together and make visible all of the early English books held in multiple rare book collections that are now part of the Kislak Center. At one time, a number (though never all) of the early English books in the rare book collection were catalogued by their Short Title numbers. That is no longer true.
