Globalization:  A Research Guide to Resources in the Princeton University Library

In the Service of All Nations

Increasingly throughout the twentieth century, Princeton University expanded its focus to include a global perspective.  At its 250th Anniversary in 1996, the University' extended the phrase "Princeton in the Nation's Service" used by Woodrow Wilson at the 150th Anniversary a century earlier.  At the dawn of the 21st century, it continues "... And in the Service of All Nations."  Translating that high ideal into a matrix of information sources is a daunting task, but one that the Princeton University Library meets in an exemplary way. Today's library collections and resources support the international and multinational components of the education, scholarship, and service which are in statement and in fact the strong foundation of the University's mission.  This guide will identify some of those resources.
