Philly 2009: PJAC revised information

Corrections have been made to the post, Philly 2009: Resource Room adds more records, as communicated by Sarah Sherman.

Sarah's information has been incorporated into that post, but for the sake of clarity and reducing confusion, please note the following:

The address of Paley Library is 1210 West Berks.

Conference attendees visiting the Philadelphia Jewish Archives should note that, the PJAC will be operating out of the Lecture Hall in Paley Library, where resources will be. Both the Lecture Hall and Urban Archives (PJAC's new administrative home) are in the basement of Paley Library, Temple's main library, at the address above.

Additionally:

REVISED HOURS: Tuesday-Thursday, August 4-6, from 1-5pm. (No Monday hours).

ACCESS: Each visitor will need to present a photo ID (such as a driver's license) to enter Paley and to use materials.

PROCEDURE: Visitors should inform Paley Library entrance attendants that they want to go to Urban Archives. Visitors will be asked to show ID and sign-in. They may use microfilm one reel at a time, after handing their photo ID to Urban Archives personnel. Urban Archives personnel will search cards for relevant names. Copying will be done by Urban Archives personnel.

For more information on what records will be in the Resource Room at the hotel and what records will be accessible Tuesday-Thursday afternoons at Urban Archives at the Library, see the post at the link above.

Tracing the Tribe thanks Sarah Sherman for the updated information.
