Message from Karen Albert, Library Director

I invite you to explore the many facets of the Paul J. Gutman Library, which combines a beautiful physical space with an extensive virtual presence represented by our website, the gateway to our multitude of online resources and services.

The Library building is a great place for quiet study, group work, or computer access, at one of our 80 Windows or Macintosh workstations. The entire library is wireless enabled, and you can also make use of our scanners and black and white or color printers and photocopiers. Feel free to consult print books and journals to support your academic work, or select a novel or audio book from our popular collection. Be sure to request an item on interlibrary loan, if you dont find what you need.

Staff are available in the library to answer your questions. Reference librarians can provide guidance in how best to use our online and print resources. We welcome your questions in person, via our general email address, or through contact with specific staff members.

Off-campus access to our electronic databases and journals is easily available by connecting to resources through the library’s website and entering your Philadelphia U. login information.

We are always seeking ways to improve library services. Please contact me with your questions or suggestions. 


Thank you,
Karen M. Albert
