Greek Art & Archaeology: Finding Books

General information on doing research in this area at Princeton.

Non-Circulating Collection

Marquand is a non-circulating library, which means
that no books or journals may leave the library,
but may be charged to assigned shelves for eligible patrons inside the West Atrium in Firestone Library, C Floor. Otherwise, books will be held for patrons after requested and delivered to the Scribner Library Atrium in Firestone Library, C Floor. This includes Marquand's collection (formerly in McCormick Hall and temporarily stored in Upstate NY) and items located off of Route 1 at the ReCAP facility indicated with "ReCAP - Marquand Library Use Only."

Library Catalog

Starting with the library catalog is your best bet to determine what Princeton has in its 9 separate campus libraries. See the Course Reserves link at the upper right to see what physical books are on reserve in Marquand for your course.
