APS buildings are open to staff and invited guests. The Library is undergoing a renovation project that will make many collections inaccessible. It is expected to be completed in early 2022. 

Resident Fellowships

The American Philosophical Society's Library and Museum offer several groups of fellowships for scholars at various stages in their careers.

The APS's Library & Museum invites scholars to apply for fellowships to do research in the collections. Fellowships are offered for short-term and long-term opportunities, for subject-specific research, and in digital humanities.

Postdoctoral fellowships are also available for recent Ph.D. graduates seeking hands-on experience in curatorial work and the opportunity to pursue an independent research project, preferably one related to the collections or programs of the Society’s Library & Museum.
