The latest library information can be found on the library's website . Take some time to look at the Undergraduate Students section (including a Checklist for first years). Spring 2021 information is available here.
Use the Library's chat service Connect instantly via Ask-a-Librarian to get help.
E-MAIL E-mail me directly, rfriedma@ or marquand@, to ask a question or to set up a research appointment via Zoom. Alternatively, contact another subject specialist.
- Students on leave:
- Students on leave retain remote access to library e-resources for 500 days (from their last date of enrollment in the University System).
- Extended access program:
- 2020 undergraduate graduates can submit THIS FORM to gain extended, remote access to library e-resources until June 1, 2021. The Identity Office processes these forms and it usually just takes a day to two for access to be granted.
- 2020 graduate student graduates are required to work with their graduate school to gain extended access. There is a workflow in place and they should contact their graduate administrator.
- Many emails have been sent to students about both of these programs. Please refer student inquires to Joe Marciniak (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Email eSupport@princeton.edu if you:
- Encounter broken links in the catalog or Database List
- See an error message while attempting to access an e-resource
- Discover a discrepancy between catalog holdings information and vendor-site information
- Remote access to library e-resources:
- The GlobalProtect VPN does not work with library e-resources.
- The SonicWall VPN does work with library resources, and it is not being discontinued until January 31, 2021. Much more on this later, but SonicWall should be used during the fall semester.
- EZproxy access is also available for resources via links in the catalog and on the library’s website.
- Don’t forget about our Using the Library Off-Campus site, which was recently updated.
- International access:
- If a student’s location prevents them from accessing library resources, there is nothing the library or the vendor can do to remedy this. For example, if a student is in a country where the government restricts access to certain websites/information, we are unable to provide a workaround.
- We have contacted our larger vendors (e.g. JSTOR, ProQuest, etc.) to learn of any known issues with worldwide access, and so far, none have been reported.
Schedule a one-on-one research appointment or tour of Marquand with me by e-mailing me (above). I have sometimes used WASS or WASE but found them to be more trouble than it's worth as my schedule is so variable.
