Collections and Divisions

The Department of Special Collections is one of the premier repositories of its kind. Its holdings span five millennia and five continents, and include around 300,000 rare or significant printed works; 30,000 linear feet of textual materials, ranging from cuneiform tablets to contemporary manuscripts; a wealth of prints, drawings, photographs, maps, coins, and other visual materials; the Cotsen Children's Library; and the Princeton University Archives. The recently-gifted Scheide Library is also associated with the Department. Galleries are located within Firestone Library and the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library.
