 Collection
Identifier: PC-08-01-01

Overview

The records of the Adam and Sophie Gimbel Art and Design Library of Parsons School for Design consist of administrative files generated by library administrators and school executives. Topics include library collections, facilities, fund raising, instruction, policies and procedures, statistical record-keeping, and staffing, as well as the library's role in college and university acceditation. While the earliest records document the library's activities in the late 1950s prior to Parsons School of Design's affiliation with The New School, the bulk of the records dates from the period after Parsons School of Design's library re-located from East 54th Street to 2 West 13th Street in 1972.
