Many of our members’ partners/spouses are themselves academics, so we want to make sure their research can continue while in residence at the Institute. Accordingly, partners/spouses are offered a variety of computing and library privileges throughout their stay.

The Institute is home to two main libraries – the Historical Studies-Social Science Library and the Math-Natural Sciences Library – as well as the Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center and a growing digital library. Through an agreement with Princeton University, we also have access to all of their vast library resources (physical and digital), which can be brought to campus by currier upon request.
Finding external funding to support research is an important part of most academics' skillsets. The Institute's Academic Officer, Josephine Faass, provides basic support services to members and their partners/spouses in identifying appropriate funding opportunitities for their research, and creating impactful submission materials.
