Philadelphia: Temple Libraries and Penn Libraries Collaborate to Ensure Summer Access

From Penn Libraries:

On May 9, Paley Library — the main campus library of Temple University — officially shut its doors to the public. The closure marked the advent of the summer-long relocation of Paley’s physical collection to Temple’s landmark Charles Library, which will officially open at the beginning of the fall semester. Temple affiliates will not have access to the library’s physical collection in the interim.

Joe Lucia, Dean of Temple Libraries, and Constantia Constantinou, H. Carton Rogers III Vice Provost and Director of the Penn Libraries, saw this temporary inconvenience as an opportunity for collaboration between neighboring institutions. Thus, the Temple and Penn Libraries are pleased to announce that all Temple affiliates have courtesy borrowing privileges from and library access to Penn’s collections throughout the summer.
