Using Princeton University Library services and collections during the pandemic

1. Princeton University Library privileges: We have online forms that will assist you with setting up your Princeton University Library account; please contact your Institute library staff (Historical Studies-Social Sciences, or Mathematics-Natural Sciences) for the forms.  The first is for requesting a NetID, and the second for connecting your NetID (once received) to a PUL library account. When you receive a library account, this will also generate a PUL library key card which opens locked library doors. Please contact hslib [at] or mnlib [at]

Once you have your NetID as well as a library card, you are required to take the COVID19 awareness training before you can request any books: : the class to take is Safe Practices for Resumption of On-Campus Operations.

2. Individuals from the Institute community may use the Study-Browse Service offered by Princeton University Library; however, anyone wishing to use this service is REQUIRED to enroll** in the University's Asymptomatic Testing program.  Only those who are enrolled in that program may schedule a study/browse seat.

**To enroll in the program, they should contact Tara Zarillo by email (tlreilly [at]

3. Given that you are required to fill in the Institute COVID19 daily check-in before coming to campus, you don't have to use Princeton's daily system check: before going to retrieve books from the University Libraries.
