What is HathiTrust?

RB vault is open again!

For now, we are once again able to resume access to our rare book vault for Marquand-rare consultations between the hours of 9-5, Monday through Friday. All rare items must be requested online via the Main Catalog or Books+, and patrons may simply show up and we will pull the items in question upon arrival. ReCAP-rare items require an extra 2-3 business days to arrive from off site. We are carefully monitoring the temperature and humidity in the vault, so should we need to close the vault again unexpectedly, we will post an alert here on our website.

Demo Ipad at Reference Desk

Marquand Library is in the midst of an experiment to provide access to unique digital art content via circulating iPads.

Art related e-books, including artist-produced projects, as well as mobile applications (i.e, apps) will be downloaded

to the iPads.  This is different than the PUL iPad lending program.  see http://libguides.princeton.edu/ipad
