Paley Library Goes to 24/7 for Finals

Starting today, Thursday, April 23, at 8:00 am, Paley Library will stay open continuously through Wednesday, May 6 at 8:00 pm.

By staying open 24/7 throughout finals, Temple Libraries provides students with a convenient study space…with all the amenities of a research library – but that’s not all.

We are once again having therapy dogs visiting the library to help students relieve exam week stress – and we have increased the number of visits by the dogs. Check the schedule to find out when the dogs will be at Paley Library.

We’ll also be providing coffee and cookies at 10:00 pm on April 30, May 1, May 4 and May 5. On Sunday, May 3 we’ll have coffee and muffins at noon. Quantities are limited.

Asad’s Lecture Available at iTunes U

On Wednesday, February 13, 2008, Dr. Talal Asad gave a timely, relevant lecture on violence in contemporary culture at Paley Library’s Lecture Hall. Asad, an influential anthropologist who has impacted anthropology, history, religious. area studies and other disciplines, spoke to a standing room only crowd.

To make this important event available to the widest possible audience, Temple University Libraries, the Center for Humanities and the General Education Program, sponsors of this event, are pleased to make a video recording of Asad’s lecture available on Temple University’s iTunes U (link will open iTunes, you must have iTunes to view the video). If you were unable to attend the event, this is an opportunity to share in the experience. In the image below, Dr. Asad takes questions from the audience.
