One of the major reasons for keeping historical documents is to provide access to them for research use, and scholars travel from around the world to the Mudd Manuscript Library to read our documents in order to write their books and articles. For the first time, with the help of Google Books, we have created bibliographies for volumes written using our collections. Over the past three decades, there have been more than 30 books written using sources from the Princeton University Archives and over 300 books from our 20th Century Public Policy Papers. These files are linked off of our Conducting Research page from Mudd’s homepage.
Both lists are impressive for their scope and help demonstrate how our holdings can be exploited—in the best sense of the word.
If you know of others that should be listed, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be glad to update the list.
Library service character is the soul of library service.
