Summer Special Collections Research Opportunities at Temple

The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania and Temple University Special Collections Division are pleased to invite you to explore the collections housed within the Temple libraries.   

The Temple University Special Collections Division is located in the Paley Library on the main campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. The Special Collections Division now includes the Temple Urban Archives, the Philadelphia Jewish Archives, Conwellana & Templana, and Rare Books & Manuscripts. Temple's Urban Archive contains the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin clipping and photo collection, along with thousands of manuscripts, pamphlets and books. Temple collections are particularly strong in the time period from early to mid 20th century, and include materials from hundreds of Philadelphia businesses, manufacturing companies, community and social organizations.

Three summer research sessions available; only twelve researchers can be accommodated per session. Session dates are June 15, July 13, and August 17. Visit for more information and to register.
