Goldstein Family

Main content

Patricia and Bernard Goldstein are committed to the support of information processing resources at the Library. Their gifts make possible the refurbished Information Processing Center, a new Electronic Classroom, and additional projects to support the acquisition and management of knowledge and information resources.

"The University has long had 'open arms' for ideas, talented people, and technology. When I was an undergraduate, one of the first digital computers resided in the basement of the Moore School. Little did our generation know the role it would play, during a single lifetime, in the vast redeployment of capital and information throughout the world. My wife, Patricia, and I are pleased to play a small part in making all of this more accessible to today's students and tomorrow's." --Bernard Goldstein, W'53

They, and their son Mark, C'83, have also made possible enormous improvements to undergraduate use of the Library. The Mark H. and Bernard Goldstein Undergraduate Study Center on the ground floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center was enhanced in 2003 with the addition of the trendy Mark's Cafe.
