Conducting Research

Accessing the Reading Rooms

Please note: At this time, due to COVID, the Special Collections reading rooms are open on a walk-in basis for members of the Princeton University community who have access to campus buildings and to the general public on a very limited appointment basis. Please see the Access Services page for more information.

Finding Material

The Department of Special Collections has a wide variety of online reference tools that describe its holdings in varying degrees of detail. While these tools take different forms, ranging from descriptive guides to collection- and item-level bibliographic records, their purpose is to describe and, in some cases, digitally reproduce the material in our collections.

Requesting Library Services

The Department offers a wide range of library services, from assisting with research and publications to managing university records.
