All materials in the Princeton University Libraries have been assigned call numbers and are shelved in specific named locations. To find an item, it is important to note both the location code and the call number.
Study carrels are available within Firestone for eligible seniors, graduate students, and faculty members. Most carrels are small two-person offices that can be locked. Others are open desks within the graduate study rooms. In all cases, you may check out books to your carrel. Carrels are administered by staff in the Firestone Access Office. Users whose research collections are primarily in a branch library, should consult that library?s web site or speak to staff there about the availability of assigned study spaces.
Catalogs provide principal identification of items within any library?s collections. Princeton has both a Main Catalog
that lists the holdings of all campus libraries and a Supplementary Catalog
that is a scanned copy of the large card file on the first floor of the Firestone Library.
Within the Princeton University Library system there are many specialized collections of materials. Some are housed within Firestone Library, and others are housed in the branch libraries. To identify collections of interest, see each unit?s home page starting with http://libweb.princeton.edu/libraries/collections.php or http://libweb.princeton.edu/libraries/libraries.php, or consult the appropriate subject specialist
