The Fisher Fine Arts Library provides study carrels and art shelves for students to reserve for the duration of the academic year. The benefit of using a carrel or art shelf is that one can check materials out to either location and maintain a core collection of materials in one place. These materials are not to leave the building and are subject to recalls. PennDesign and History of Art graduate students in a PhD program or last year of Master's study are given priority; students at other points in their programs and seniors embarking on their senior essay will be placed on a wait list first. For more information or to reserve a carrel or shelf, please contact Robert Lawley in the Fisher. You may also submit your application for a carrel via the Fine Arts Library Carrel Application.
