Art 400

Research Guide for Art 400: Junior Seminar.

Off-site (Annexes 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 [Marquand ReCAP materials may only be consulted in Marquand]. Requests take a day or two to arrive (excluding weekends - LONGER for Marquand materials prior to Fall 2024), 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 includes less-used materials managed by the Lewis (Science) Library. ReCAP include items owned by Columbia University,  New York Public Library, and Harvard: records for these will have a C, N or H at the bottom (and "SCSB" in the URL) and may be requested much like Princeton ReCAP items. If possible, look for and request the Princeton copy of a title, as you can do more with it and we can scan more from it.

Marquand Library

Marquand Library, normally located in McCormick Hall next to the PU Art Museum, is one of the finest art history, architecture, and archaeology libraries in North America, used by the entire campus and visited by 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 temporarily 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 must be made via the library catalog.

Marquand is non-circulating. Any item in use by someone else (i.e. on a shelf or in a faculty office) will have status ASK STAFF. Ask at front desk or email and we will do our best to retrieve the item in question for your consultation. (In some cases, "ask staff" books are not yet physically at Princeton, i.e. "on order.")
