Exhibit your artwork in Greenfield Library!

Now that the Greenfield Library has been renovated and we’re hanging our artwork back up, we’d love to show some student work too. Our new study area has a small, but terrific and highly visible, space for showing 2D work, creative writing, and short scripts. There are no entry fees and no deadlines! It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Get all the information on applying by visiting the circulation desk to pick up guidelines and a proposal form. Questions? Contact our Circulation Supervisor, Shannon Robinson, at srobinson@uarts.edu or 215 717 6280.

2. Submit up to 2 photos of the work you would like to show. You can submit photos with the application or email a .jpg to Shannon at srobinson@uarts.edu please write “Student Exhibition Submission” in the Subject line.

3. Submit an artist statement (1 page or less) with your application. This is optional, but always helpful in understanding the artwork. If accepted, the artist statement can be included in the exhibition.

We can’t wait to display the work you’ve been doing in your studios!

It’s back! The “New Books” shelf is back!

Warren, Sid, Jim and many others – you kept asking when we’d have the “New Books” shelf back again. We have re-purposed one of the periodical shelves to feature those wonderful new books.

If you never saw the old one, the New Books shelf is just a spot where we put out the new books so people can see what’s new. New books may be checked out right away.  We hope you’ll enjoy having this popular feature back again!

New catalog search options

You can now limit your catalog searches to specific parts of our collections, using the “In:” options.

Just want to find DVDs or VHS?  Use the “Video” option.

Looking for a piece of music’s score and a performance of it?  Try “Music (scores & recordings)”.

You can also find only “Electronic Resources”, or conversely, limit to “Print Only” to find good old-fashioned books and journals.

“Audio” finds CDs, LPs, or cassettes; “Book Arts” just searches our collection of artists’ books; and “Reference” searches our reference sections, including online sources.

And of course, you can still choose “Entire Collection” to search through all of our holdings.

We hope these enhancements will improve your search experience and help you more quickly find the materials you need.  Please send any questions or comments to Josh Roberts, Digital Initiatives & Systems Librarian, joroberts@uarts.edu.
