Description TRANSCRIPT

Interviewed by librarian Carmen Hendershott in her office on the second floor of 55 West 13th Street. David Worley discusses his initial temporary employment at The New School as a registration clerk and eventual permanent hiring at the Raymond Fogelman Library, a social sciences library formerly located in 65 Fifth Avenue. He describes the evolution of the South Manhattan library consortium, with New York University as well as the consolidation of a number of jobs under this arrangement, and more broadly, union organizing at the New School. Worley also narrates the emergence of The New School for Public Engagement and the emphasis on degree-seeking students under former provost James Murtha.
