Penn State Wilkes-Barre

Penn State Wilkes-Barre has a long and interesting history, much of which is yet un researched.

Much of what we do know comes from the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Nesbitt Library Campus Archives, which was created by then Head Librarian Jennie Knies, and Student Engagement and Outreach Librarian Megan Mac Gregor, as part of the Centennial celebration of the campus in 2016.
