"This month, Stanford University Libraries established the first academic, university-based Bahá'í collection in the United States. The donation of one of the most extensive Bahá'í libraries in private hands preserves a history that might otherwise be lost."

"The collection includes more than 1,000 books, letters, photographs and rare, out-of-print early Bahá'í publications from around the world, as well as other archival materials and papers."
