The Digital Dictionary of Quaker Biography

The Digital Dictionary of Quaker Biography is a pilot project of Haverford College Special Collections to explore the possibilities of creating an online version of the much used Dictionary of Quaker Biography. The goals of the project are as follows:

  • Preserve and safeguard the original paper copies
  • Preserve the integrity of the original text
  • But allow it also to be edited, updated, corrected and grow
  • Address issues of scholarliness, authority, inclusion and scope
  • Make the content more widely available
  • Encourage use and contribution by a range of users
  • Promote cooperative/distributed scholarship
