The Library Chronicle

The Princeton University Library Chronicle is an interdisciplinary journal which publishes articles of scholarly importance and general interest based on research in the collections of the Princeton University Library. The Chronicle is typically published twice a year under the sponsorship of the Friends of the Princeton University Library. Previous editions of The Chronicle can be accessed on JSTOR.

Individual subscriptions are available through membership in the Friends. Institutional subscriptions are free upon request


The Chronicle welcomes proposals for articles relating to all facets of the Library's collections, including essays and commentaries on their histories and the collectors who created them. Reviews of exhibits are normally commissioned by the editor. Articles should not have been published previously. Nor can we consider articles that are under review at other publications.
