Bring Your University ID
A valid Princeton University ID (PU ID) or visitor access card is required at all times to enter Firestone Library and the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology.
Several other campus libraries require a valid PU ID during evenings and weekends.
Campus guests should review the Library Access Policy and call the Access Office at 609-258-5737 well in advance of their visit.
Activate Your Barcode
Your PU ID card serves as your library card, allowing you to take books from the library and make use of all library services.
You may need to activate the barcode on your ID before you can take books out from the Library.
Stop by the Circulation Desk and ask a staff member if you need assistance.

Your gateway to information begins with the Library web site. As you begin to explore, note links to practical information, such as hours, circulation procedures, and descriptions of the various libraries and collections that are all part of the University Library. Follow the links under Books, Articles, More to explore the great variety of materials available to Princeton users.
Experiment with SearchIt@PUL, the Library's beta search interface and discover a wide variety of research information from the Main Catalog, our various article databases, and our digital collection repositories.
