Marquand Library, previously 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. As of 3-22-21, Marquand's collection is accessible by request and viewable in two reading rooms on the C Floor of Firestone Library. 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 is available on its website.
Marquand is fully non-circulating. That means everything in the art library collection should be consulted on-site or scans may be requested if e-versions are not available.
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.
