Access to the Library
The Princeton University Library serves the teaching, research and scholarly activities of the University faculty, staff, and students. Access and borrowing privileges are accorded to anyone who shows upon request a valid Princeton University campus identification card with photograph. Members of the University community include spouses, domestic partners, widows, widowers, and children of University employees.
The Library also welcomes the use of its collections by researchers and scholars not affiliated with the University under certain conditions described in the Library Privileges Office. Non-affiliated researchers may have to pay for access or borrowing privileges. Contact the Library Privileges Office to make arrangements for visitor access to the Library. The Library Privileges Office is located to the right of the Firestone Library entrance. The Office has more limited hours than the library, therefore it is essential to check office hours before arriving.
