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. We also welcome visitors to the Library and provide either free or for-fee access and borrowing privileges depending on an individual's affliation.
