The Gutman Library Special Collections houses thousands of mid-century textile designs, such as this upholstery pattern from the Northampton Textile Company.

Before the advent of computer assisted design, these gouache on paper repeat patterns were the starting point for the manufacturing of textiles.

Stan Gorski, director of the Paul J. Gutman Library, retires this September after 37 years with the university.

From his early days as the part-time evening librarian to becoming the director of the library, Stan always had one primary focus — supporting students.

As we prepare to say goodbye, read a Q&A with the library legend, where he looks back at his career and plans for what's ahead. Thank you for everything you have done for the library and university Stan, we will miss you!
