It contains descriptions of publicly accessible Quaker-related collections held by repositories in Yorkshire, as well as collections held elsewhere but relating to the region. The pre-1974 county boundaries are used to define Yorkshire. The database covers Meetings of the Society of Friends, other Quaker organisations, such as schools, businesses and charities, individual Friends and Quaker families, Meeting libraries and Quaker book collections, finding aids and non-Quaker sources.
