Lewis Library Access During COVID

Lewis Library is open for use by Princeton University students, faculty, and staff with an activated PUID. For everyone's health and safety, we ask all patrons to present their PUID upon entering the Library. The Library remains closed to the public and other users. A very small number of visitor requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. To learn more about Princeton University Library’s visitor policy please visit this page.  

Research consultations with librarians are  available to students, faculty and staff in-person, or by e-mail, phone or Zoom. 

Book Pick-Up Service will continue this fall. Faculty, students, and staff with active PUIDs may request books online and pick them up at on-campus Library locations.  

PU faculty, students, and staff may request in-house digitization of articles or chapters in print book collections.  

Wearing face coverings is required for all patrons at all times, including faculty, students, and staff during Library classroom use. Social distancing is no longer required in Library spaces.
