The Near East Collections at Princeton University Library: GRADUATE STUDY ROOM (SNE)

This guide will introduce you to the history and scope of our Near East Collections here at Princeton University Library, and will also give you the basic tools you will need to start navigating the Collections themselves.

NEAR EASTERN STUDIES GRADUATE STUDY ROOM (SNE)

*The Graduate Study Room has moved into its new location on A floor of Firestone Library*

The Near Eastern Studies Graduate Study Room (SNE) houses a sizable non-circulating reference collection, with an emphasis on literary, historical, legal, and religious topics in the Near East. Reserve books for specific graduate-level courses may also be found here on occasion.  The room is open whenever Firestone Library is open and is currently located on A floor (A-12D-1). 

Because seating is unassigned and space is limited in SNE, any library books in the room that are not checked out to an individual or are not part of a course reserve will be returned to the circulation desk by the shelving staff.   Abandoned items will be given to the guards at the entrance, who will then forward them along to Public Safety's lost-and-found office.

Remember, this study room is a public space. Please be courteous to visitors, whether they are undergraduates, graduates, visiting scholars, or our own faculty.
