Admittedly, the Urban Archives do not provide the same overwhelming and circling feeling as the third floor of Paley Library, but rather reroute the fascination. The space feels like a knowledge bank – the literal shelves turn like vaults and shift to close one section and open another. This space is doing some of the most collective and thorough preservation in the entire city. To pin point the specificity, they have everything from photographs of ‘Camp Beehive’ to oral notes from Philadelphia City Meetings in the early 1900’s. That explanation even is incomparable to the vastness of the collection, and the diverse mediums the archives approach. Although I label the collection as ‘diverse’, it is more so representative of organic and common media. What qualifies as common is not necessarily defined and will always probably be difficult to define, as the person’s story and collection is subjective as well as how much the collection actually receives from outside sources. The connection to the public does present some difficulties though. Although the archives are becoming more accessible online and utilize social media, I think it is missing a target. This can possibly be aligned with Temple University’s lack of attention to the department, because they have the tools to broadcast the benefits of the department more widely than the department does alone. The public values the archives nonetheless, but the students who are consistently involved in academia should be encouraged by professors and the University as a whole to tap into the archives.
