Paul J. Gutman Library


The Jefferson Digital Commons (JDC), the university's open access institutional repository, has got a new look! Features of the new website include more resources on open access and an updated layout that makes it easier to browse and find content.

Visit the JDC and submit your research to share your scholarly work with the world!

Visit the website to learn more about the five collections: Philadelphia Postcards, Textile and Costume Collection, Textile Industry Postcards, Textile Trade Postcards, and Textile Woodblocks. Read about the library's Special Collections, search for a specific item, or browse the entire catalog.


If you missed last week's TREASURED TEXTILES: The Science Behind Preservation, check out the recorded virtual lecture on YouTube. Jade Papa, Adjunct Professor and Curator of the Textile & Costume Collection, shared select pieces from the collection and discussed the role that science plays in preserving these historical items. Visit the Textile & Costume Collection website to learn about future events.
