The main entrance to the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center is now open. Van Pelt Library and the Fisher Fine Arts Library are currently open to Penn Card holders, Penn affiliates, and certain visitors. See our Service Alerts for details.

Established in 2007 through an estate gift of Ms. Ethel Van Roden, this fund supports acquisitions in all disciplines. Although not herself a Penn graduate, Ms. Van Roden clearly felt a bequest to Penn Libraries would honor and memorialize the life of her friend, Mr. Albert E. Visk, a 1928 graduate of the Wharton School of Business.

Multidisciplinary endowment funds are particularly helpful, as they allow Penn Libraries to acquire resources in the areas of greatest need.
