Firestone Library services request

Tuesday's service will be delayed slightly due to the January 15, Martin Luther King Day, holiday. Staff will be going in the afternoon on Tuesday (1/16) and will have materials available much later, either on Tuesday late or early on Wednesday.

Tuesday and Thursday, library staff goes to Princeton University’s Firestone Library to provide three services, depending on the requests, limits may apply due to quantity of requests or size of books.  Requests are accepted until 3:00 p.m the day before:

1- Short Term Loan Service: Books will be picked up and brought back to the Institute for Advanced Study for a one week loan.
2- Scanning Service: Please note: Copyright limits apply.
3- Hold Service:  Firestone Library books are placed on the three-day hold shelf at Firestone's circulation desk.  Members would then sign the books out on their Princeton University Library card for a long-term loan.


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