Check this page for updates on the new library, currently under construction, and for updates on how our upcoming move, starting in the spring of 2019, will impact collection access, instruction sessions, and reading room availability.

SCRC Reading Room hours for Spring Semester 2019 (January 2 - May 8, 2019) will be limited to 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday, as we prepare for our move into the new Charles Library. 

For the duration of the move to Charles Library (starting in May 2019), the Special Collections Research Center’s collections will be largely inaccessible to all users.  We will respond to requests for information about and from the collections as time and access permits but may defer in-depth response until resuming regular operations at the start of the fall semester.

If you are planning on using SCRC materials any time during 2019, be sure to visit this page and contact us at, (215)204-8257, for updated information.
