About the Library

Mission

Integral to Princeton University’s mission, we enrich teaching, learning, and research by providing world-class library services and collections that are responsive to a rapidly changing scholarly environment. In collaboration with a global community of institutions with similar missions, we ensure continuing access to the world’s diverse intellectual and cultural heritage in all its forms.

Vision

Within Princeton University and across the global academic community, we aspire to be an active and creative partner by stimulating intellectual analysis, providing stewardship, and responding to evolving forms of pedagogy and research.
