Library Privileges

Library Privileges

The Princeton University Library serves the teaching, research and scholarly activities of the University faculty, students, and staff. Access and borrowing privileges are provided to individuals who hold a valid Princeton University identification card (TigerCard) with photograph. Spouses, domestic partners, and children (under 23 years of age) of University employees and students who possess a family/partner ID card are also granted library privileges. 

The Library also welcomes the use of its collections, under certain conditions, by scholars, independent researchers, and other individuals or entities not affiliated with the university. Non-affiliated researchers may be required to pay for access or borrowing privileges.
