Adopt a Collection

HSP has holdings of over 21 million items -- and they're always growing! Although valued, many of our collections require organization, improved descriptions, and preservation to ensure that they'll still be available to future generations.

From mending tears and tightening spines, to replacing whole covers and re-housing in specially designed boxes, the Adopt-a-Collection donors assists HSP with processing new and old collections. You can help us preserve history, and make these collections accessible to all!

Collection adopters receive special recognition on HSP's website. If a Finding Aid is created for the adopted collection, donors are prominently featured on its title page.

For additional information, contact JC Hatalski, Chief Development Officer, at 215-732-6200, x 220, or via email at
