      Browse the Ursuline Collection

The Ursuline Collection consists of over 500 volumes relating  to the origins and development in Europe and America of the Ursuline Order (Congregation of St. Ursula found in 1535), biographical studies of leading women in the Order, and works about educational institutions for women established by Ursulines in the United States and elsewhere. The Collection, the only one of its kind held by an academic library in the United States, contains numerous rare volumes and includes works in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish, as well as in English. Numerous titles date from before the French Revolution.

The Collection is housed in the College Archives and is accessible to qualified researchers by appointment only.   Appointments must be made in advance (914-654-5349).
