One of the first additions to the new H-Pennsylvania Commons page is a list of archival repositories in the state of Pennsylvania. The goal of this page is to provide a listing (as near complete as possible) of all the archives and special collections libraries available to researchers, and to grow the list by adding many of the smaller historical society libraries and college archives that go "under the radar." I have grouped the archives by the simplest overall categories (i.e. local history, religious history, state history, etc.).
H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.
As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.
To submit them now, simply scroll down to the "Write New Discussion Post" link on this page. Enter your post in the field that pops up, add a few tags (or "keywords"), and click "Review" at the bottom of the page. Everything look OK? Then click "Submit to Editor" at the bottom of the review page and that's it! And there's a more elaborate version of these instructions here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/905/pages/977/submit-discussion-post.
Permit me to introduce myself as one of the newest editors of H-Pennsylvania. My name is James Haluska, Jr, and I specialize in Colonial and Early Republic Pennsylvania history with a focus on the formation of political and social identities during said time frame.
