The Fisher Fine Arts Library provides study carrels for students to reserve for the duration of the academic year. The benefit of using a carrel is that one can maintain a core collection of materials in one place, charged to their carrel. 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 the last year of Master's program 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. Due to limited number of carrels, only students in the School of Design and History of Art programs are eligible to apply. For more information or to reserve a carrel or shelf, please contact Kirby Bell or Robert Lawley in the Fisher. You may also submit your application for a carrel via the Fine Arts Library Carrel Application.
