Library staff go to Princeton University’s Firestone Library on Tuesday and Thursday to provide three services.
We offer: 1. A short term loan service (we bring books back for you for a one month loan), 2. placing books on hold in Firestone Library for you to pick up for longer use, and 3. scanning (within copyright limits). 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. Requests take time for processing when held in Recap by Princeton University Library.
9/22/22 IAS staff have been informed that we may not request books from Recap for you when you would like to have them placed on hold to charge out for the academic year. The individual who wants to charge it out has to be the individual who requests the item from Recap.
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.
