Marquand Library

Marquand Library, normally located in McCormick Hall next to the PU Art Museum, is one of the most notable art history, architecture, and archaeology libraries in North America, used by the Princeton community and visited by students and scholars from all over the world. One will find books and exhibition catalogs that are not available widely. Marquand also has a sizeable and growing rare book collection. More information about Marquand is available on its website.

As of March 2021, Marquand is located in two reading rooms in Firestone Library (C Floor) while a new Art Museum is being constructed. The physical collections are all off-site and requests--including for scans--must be made via the library catalog. Use Article Express for scans as a backup if requesting via the catalog is not possible. Email with any questions about using the art collection.

Marquand is non-circulating so no art book may leave the C-Floor rooms. Any item in use by someone else (i.e. on a shelf or in a faculty/curator office) will have status ASK STAFF. Ask at a staffed desk or email  as to the whereabouts of an item. (In some cases, "
Ask Staff" books are not yet physically at Princeton, i.e. "on order.")
