This video introduces the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute, which is the premier library on the history of women in America. The Schlesinger is one of Harvard’s special collections libraries, which means its holdings are largely unique and include such materials as diaries, letters, journals, manuscripts, photo albums, organizational records, and home videos. The Schlesinger Library holds the papers of remarkable individuals—pioneers and leaders in many fields—as well as ordinary women and families. These collections, open to the public, offer worlds of discovery for students, faculty members, and other researchers.
