About

“Unique at Penn” provides descriptions and contextualization of items from the collections of the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. The site focuses on those materials held by Penn which are in some sense “unique” –  drawn from both our special and circulating collections, whether a one-of-a-kind medieval manuscript or a twentieth-century popular novel with generations of student notes penciled inside.

“Unique at Penn”  welcomes contributions from faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduates who have experience with our collections and want to share their knowledge with the world. If you would like to contribute please email the editor Mitch Fraas (fraas at upenn . edu).

For those interested the header image on the blog is taken from the 1749 “Constitutions of the Publick Academy in the City of Philadelphia” one of the founding documents of the University of Pennsylvania.

The conclusions and views presented on “Unique at Penn” reflect that of their writers and do not represent the official position of the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Pennsylvania Libraries
