Following is information about some of the essential things you may want to know about the library.

Reserve Reading

The Library makes reserve readings available for Woodrow Wilson School courses. Please submit your reserve readings lists as early as possible. Journal articles and book chapters, where copyright guidelines allow, will be made available electronically through the library web site and through the Blackboard site for individual courses. The library will obtain copyright clearance for any readings made available electronically that fall outside the "fair use" guidelines. Readings not available electronically will be available in paper form in the library. These can circulate for 3 hours.

To submit your lists or for questions about reserve readings, contact Hattie Lively (lively@princeton.edu, 258-4848).

Book Express/Article Express

Need a book from the library system or a journal article? The Book Express service supports delivery of books and the Article Express Service supports delivery of journal articles and book chapters to the faculty of the Woodrow Wilson School and the Office of Population Research. Submit your request for books by using the Book Express form. The books will be delivered to your mailbox. Submit your request for journal articles, book chapters, and conference proceedings using the Article Express form. Please contact Stokes Library (piaprlib@princeton.edu, 258-4848).

Research Consultations/Library Instruction

Library staff is available to help you with your research needs or to provide instruction in the use of library materials for you or your students. General library orientations, sessions for resources related to specific courses, or workshops related to specific databases are available. Please contact Nancy Pressman Levy (pressman@princeton.edu, 258-4782).

Circulation Policy

Two individual collections are held within the Donald E. Stokes Library. The regular loan period for "SPIA" materials (public policy, international relations, etc.) that are not on reserve for a course, is 4 weeks. For "SPR" materials (population research collection), items may be charged out for the term. All materials may be renewed if no one else is waiting for a particular item. Certain collections, such as some journals and reference materials, do not circulate. Reserve materials can be taken out for 3-hours only. In order to borrow materials please have your Princeton university id card activated at any Circulation Desk throughout the library system. Stokes Library books other than 3 hour loans can be renewed online.

Collaborative Study Rooms

The Collaborative study rooms are located in Rooms 63, 65, and 67. These rooms are designed for GROUPS of students and/or faculty to work on various projects. The rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis or can be reserved on the calendar posted outside of each room.

Electronic Classroom

The instructional classroom with 12 student workstations and an instructor's workstation is located in Room 70. Its primary purpose is for classes conducted by Princeton University Library staff for the Princeton University community. The classroom is also used for computer workshops held by the Woodrow Wilson School, Office of Population Research, and Sociology Department. The classroom reverts to general library research computers when not reserved for class sessions. You can reserve the room by filling out the Reserve Electronic Classroom form.
