Albert M. Greenfield Library contains one of the finer art and design school libraries in the country, dating back to 1876 when the College of Art and Design was founded as the Pennsylvania Museum and School of Industrial Art. It also houses the vast music collections, originating with the founding of the School of Music as the Philadelphia Musical Academy in 1870. The collections contains materials in many formats covering art and design, dance, music, theater, media arts, liberal arts, and other general subjects.
The library is on the first floor of Anderson Hall and contains several reading areas as well as lounge-type seating. Equipment available for use in the library includes phone chargers, laptop chargers, and noise-canceling headphones. Electrical outlets are conveniently located near most seating. A color scanner/copier/printer is available, as well as a second scanner attached to a b&w copier/printer. Scanning to your UArts email address is free, and funds for copies/prints are attached to your student account.
