Summer hours are 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Questions regarding a specific research topic may be directed to one of Princeton University Library's Subject Specialists.

New Acquisitions

Each year, Princeton University Library has the opportunity to add very special items to its holdings of print, digital, non-print and manuscript material either through acquisition or as gifts to the Library. We have chosen some of these titles added this year to highlight. They may also be found by searching the Library’s Online Catalog.
