New Accessions at the Mudd Library

The Mudd Manuscript Library typically adds between 100 and 150 items or collections to its holdings each year. As part of our commitment to publicly providing information about our collections, we will be including a monthly listing of new accessions on our blog. Anyone interested in additional information about the accessions listed below should contact the library through our general email account.

In addition to the monthly listings here, an rss feed on newly cataloged resources at Mudd is available via the Princeton University Library webpage (be sure to select Seeley G. Mudd Library from the “location” drop down menu). We are also, as part of our efforts to revamp our accessioning processes, creating, updating, and posting finding aids on the library’s EAD website within several weeks of the accession’s arrival at the library.
