Creating a Research Account

Researchers planning to visit Special Collections either in person or to use the virtual services should create a Special Collections Research Account in order to access materials. With an Account, you can request materials and staff will be able to help you access these when you’re ready.

Those affiliated with Princeton University (i.e. current students, staff, and faculty with an active NetID) should use the left-side form.

Those not affiliated with Princeton University (i.e. Princeton alumni and independent researchers) should use the right-side form. If it is your first time registering, please choose the “First Time Users” link.

All researchers will be asked to accept the departmental guidelines on using archival materials. After submitting the registration information, researchers will then be able to submit requests to view materials.
