Marquand Library

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

NOTE: as of March 2021, Marquand is physically located in two reading rooms in Firestone Library (C Floor). The physical collections are all off-site and requests but me made via the library catalog.

Marquand is fully non-circulating. Any item in use by someone else (i.e. on a shelf or in a faculty office) will have status SEE FRONT DESK). Ask at front desk and we will do our best to retrieve the item in question for your consultation.

Off-site (Annex and ReCAP)

RECAP, FORRESTAL ANNEX and FINE ANNEX are off-site locations. Normally, these items are requested via the library catalog and one must designate a pickup library of choice [most Marquand ReCAP materials may only be consulted in Marquand]. Requests take a day or two to arrive (excluding weekends), and you will be notified via the e-mail address you provide. The Forrestal Annex contains humanities materials and multiple copies of reserve titles, while the Fine Hall Annex is Lewis (Science) Library's off-site storage. ReCAP include items owned by Columbia University,  New York Public Library, and Harvard: these will look like--minus the C, N or H at the bottom--and may be requested much like Princeton ReCAP items. Attention: for 2020-21: scans are the preferred method for delivery of chapters and articles needed from ReCAP books. If an entire RECAP book is needed and one is on-campus, pickups for circulating material may be arranged via the library catalog. Library-use only materials are less available at present. E-mail with questions.
