Access to Mudd Library During Renovation

The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library building closed to the public for renovations as planned on March 13, 2020. A slight delay in the project followed, but we were able to safely relocate the collections to an off-site storage facility. The building is currently under construction, and is nearing completion. In order to safely move the collections back into the building, access to the collections will be extremely limited. 

At this time, we are not able to answer reference questions related to specific materials in our collections. Questions that do not require access to the physical collections will be answered in a timely manner and will depend on the complexity of your inquiry.

We expect staff to have access to the collections again in September, 2021. Please note, this date is subject to change. At that time, we also hope to open our reading room again to members of the Princeton community. We do not currently have information on when we will be able to welcome non-Princeton researchers back to campus. However, we will be able to resume digitization requests in the Fall. More information will be available on the website when we resume our services in September.

Stay tuned to this page for the most up-to-date information. We appreciate your patience.
