As of Friday December 19, 2008 an era will end. The Tyler School of Art Library will close its doors at the Elkins Park location. The materials, including journals, housed at Tyler will be integrated into the Paley Library. Older and lesser used materials will be moved to the Library Depository. Depository items may be requested for use by filling out a form linked to the catalog record. The Diamond online catalog will reflect the new item locations when the libraries re-open on Monday January 5, 2009.
The Tyler location will be changing and the materials will be moving, but the Temple University Libraries will continue to serve the education and research needs of the Tyler population. Reference, library instruction and research services will be delivered by the Paley Library Reference and Instruction Services Department. Access services, located in Tuttleman, will handle any material location issues and course reserves. For information on course reserves call 215-204-0747.
This move will also add “new” holdings to the general and reference collections at Paley, so the rich collections of materials for students and the wider Temple community will be deeper than ever and available at main campus.
The staff of the Tyler Library will be relocating also. Andrea Goldstein, the Tyler Librarian, will be joining the Ambler Library staff. Frank Marzullo, the Tyler Library technical assistant will also be joining the Ambler Library staff. Ann Mosher, the bibliographic assistant at Tyler, will be moving to the Urban Archives in Paley Library.
New opportunities for the Tyler staff, and “new” resources at the Paley Library will ring in the New Year at the Temple University Libraries!
Addendum 08/20/09: Jill Luedke has been hired as the new Subject Specialist for Art. She can be contacted at at email@example.com or 215-204-3166.
