Walsh Gallery recently added three major collections to Google Arts and Culture, the D’Argenio Coin Exhibit 1 (Early coins), the D’Argenio Coin Exhibit 2 (Roman coins), and an exhibit of Native American Basketry. Google Arts and Culture is a rapidly growing site that displays highlights from over 2,000 museums and private collections. Its app, which can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple Store, allows the visitor to interact with the artwork through AI features like virtual tours and exhibits.
The D’Argenio Collection, which consists of 427 rare coins from ancient Greece, the Roman Republic, the Roman Empire and Byzantium was donated to the university by Ronald D’Argenio MS’76/JD’79. The collection allows us to trace the relationship of the earliest Roman coins of the Republican period to its immediate Greek predecessors. It includes coins with images of Julius Caesar, the first Roman leader to have his portrait represented on a piece of currency.
We also see his imperial successors over the next three centuries represented, including the infamous Caligula and Nero. Byzantine coins in the collection from the fourth to fourteenth centuries AD demonstrate the changes in design –including the introduction of full-faced portraits– once the capital of the Roman Empire shifted from Rome to Constantinople. The exhibit can be accessed through Google Arts and Culture Walsh Gallery’s main page and the coins can be found through searches in Google Arts and Culture’s main interface, allowing the coins from Seton Hall’s collection to be seen in the context of numismatics collections around the world.
Google Arts and Culture also displays highlights from Seton Hall’s one-time University Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology Collection, now stewarded by Walsh Gallery. This museum contained an extensive collection of Native American material culture, collected and sometimes excavated by archaeologist J. Kraft. Kraft was an expert in the Lenape tribe of New Jersey, but his collection encompassed materials from Native American peoples across the Americas. The basket exhibit shows some of the finest examples of the craft in Seton Hall’s collection.
On February 12, 2020, approximately 300 students, faculty and guests attended the 14th Annual Jim and Judy O’Brien Capital Markets Colloquium, which was held at the Walsh Library. The colloquium, co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Stillman School of Business, was held for the first time at the library, which proved to be an excellent location for the day’s events.
15 concurrent workshops ran from 9:30 a.m.to 6:15 p.m. Some highlights of the day’s events included an opportunity to apprentice with a representative from Napier Park, a credit platform that has 14 billion dollars in assets; a workshop on the growing sector of e-sports; and the dress rehearsal of the 3-time champion CFA Team ((note Seton Hall has won the Chartered Financial Analyst Research Challenge 3 times and placed 11 times).
Jim O’Brien ’82 and Ned May delivered the keynote address. Jim O’Brien is the Senior Managing Partner of Napier ParkGlobal Capital and the recipient of the 2013 Many Are One Humanitarian Award from Seton Hall.

The Seton Hall University Libraries are now offering an online retrieval and hold service. With this service, patrons can request a book, CD, or DVD, and pick it up from the circulation desk of the Walsh, Seminary, or Law Library.
The blue “place a hold” button is located on the right-hand side of book records in our catalog. When users click on this button, they are prompted to log in using their SHU credentials, and then to choose where they wish to pick up the item. The item will be retrieved by library staff and held at the designated circulation desk for pickup. Items will be available 12 hours after the request is made.
To request a book from the Law Library, please use this form:

We trust that this service represents another step forward in enhancing the accessibility of the University Libraries’ resources, and we look forward to serving you.
SHU Libraries are delighted to announce that CAS has granted us unlimited access to SciFinder, a major research tool for chemistry and related sciences. No more not being able to log on because the available “seats” are occupied! In addition, SciFinder now integrates well with ChemBioDraw, to which SHU Libraries also provides access.
If you are a chemist or taking chemistry courses, sign up for a web-based SciFinder account. You can find the instructions for accessing SciFinder and ChembioDraw on the chemistry research guide.
During the weeks of August 4-8 and 18-22, 2014 the Archives, Walsh Library, will be closed to researchers so that we can accomplish some work in the vault that we cannot do when school is in full session in the Fall and Spring semesters. This work will help us to improve our service. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.
you can check if you have books that need to be returned under “using the library” >>> “my library account” — use your PirateNet user name and password to login. If you have materials that are not overdue, you can renew them online through our new library system.

Walsh Library is pleased to once again offer freely available books for your reading pleasure, just in time for the holiday season. Come and help yourself to a book and/or leave a book for others to take. The “BOOK EXCHANGE” shelves are located on the 2nd floor of Walsh Library, on the wall next to the Silent Study Room. These books do not need to be checked out.
Further along the same wall you will find our relocated “NEW BOOK” area. These books may be checked out at the circulation desk.
