Firestone Library services request

Please note COVID-19 information: Our service has been suspended for now. While you may continue submitting requests, staff are no longer allowed to go to Firestone Library for the unforeseeable future.  Princeton University has  posted information online.

Tuesday and Thursday, library staff goes to Princeton University’s Firestone Library to provide three services. We offer: 1. a short term loan service (we bring books back for you), 2. scanning (within copyright limits), and 3. we can place books at Firestone Library Circulation on hold for you to use the entire time you are here (you would have to charge them out on your own card). We may have to follow the limit of six books each trip and six scans when there are a large volume of requests or are oversized. Unless there are extreme reasons, we do not bring back multiple volumes of journals that are available digitally, particularly when they are in ReCAP. Requests are accepted until 3:00 p.m the day before.

Please contact staff if you have any questions. Thank you.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17. United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy/reproduction is not to be "used for any purposes other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes "in excess" of fair use, that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
