Welcome to the digital portal for the Miriam Y. Holden collection held in Special Collections at Princeton's Firestone Library. Here you will find digitized copies of the items in Holden's collection, which is being continuously added to through researcher requests and staff nominations. These holdings are a highlight of Princeton library. Not only as a paragon for its subject matter - material related to the history of women and the ongoing battle for women's rights and recognition - but also as one of the few examples of a women's collection that was kept intact following her death.

“Please remember when you see my books that I do not have them because they are rare, or because of their value. I collect them only because I hope they contain within them some significant record of women that will be useful to those who are seeking and using them”

Quoted in the The Princeton University Library Chronicle Vol. 41, No. 2, page 166
