University Staff

Updated July 13, 2021

Please note: PUL will continue to limit access to Library locations to Princeton University faculty, students, and staff with activated card access to buildings through the end of August. For patrons affiliated with a member of University faculty, graduate student, or staff, a small number of exceptions may be possible on a case-by-case basis. To submit a request for consideration, please visit the EHS visitor page and complete the form linked on the right. Please note that the Library will need to approve this form, not the sponsor's department head. Send completed forms to refdesk@princeton.edu and include the collections to be accessed by the visitor. Allow three business days for review of requests.

Access and borrowing privileges are provided to all University staff members who hold a valid Princeton University identification card (TigerCard) with photograph. Spouses, domestic partners and children (under 23 years of age) of University staff who possess a family ID card are also granted library privileges. Continuance of Library privileges is dependent on observance of Library policies and regulations.

The length of borrowing privileges for staff members varies depending on the collection.
