Content Roundup – Third Week – September 2013


This week finds a large number of materials newly available from many collections: Story Papers issues, Dime Novels, audio files from the Philadelphia Ceili Group! The saga of the Bride of the Tomb continues with two more chapters from our ongoing podcast reading. Many more letters and receipts are available from the Barry-Hayes papers of the Independence Seaport Museum; an important early printed work from our partners at La Salle University also makes an appearance, direct from the Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature. As well, the digitization of four long awaited Irish Language manuscripts, the “Irish Legends”, was completed this week. Finally, the 2013 theses Falvey Scholar’s award winners can now be read in full. Enjoy the coming autumn and read a book this week!
