BorrowDirect Visitors

Individuals from BorrowDirect+ institutions are eligible for free borrowing privileges. This includes the ability to borrow physical items that are located at Princeton University Library and our off-site storage facilities.

With this card, however, you cannot: 

  • Place BorrowDirect requests through Princeton
  • Return a BorrowDirect book that you requested from your home institution to Princeton
  • Place interlibrary loan requests through Princeton
  • Access databases, e-books, audiobooks, and other electronic resources from off-site

Any material borrowed directly from Princeton University Library collections must be returned to Princeton University Library, not your home institution. 

If you would like to add borrowing privileges to your library access card, please visit the Access Office Monday - Friday from 9am to 5pm.
