VISITING FELLOWSHIPS 1995-1996
Princeton University Library
The Friends of the Princeton University Library are sponsoring several
short-term Visiting Fellowships in order to promote scholarly use of the
research collections of the Library. The Department of Rare Books and Special
Collections, housed in the Harvey S. Firestone Library, has substantial
holdings of materials pertaining to the western world and the Middle East from
antiquity to the present. The Rare Book Division is especially strong in
classical Latin texts, American history and literature, English history and
literature, and French, German, and Latin American literature. The Manuscript
Division holds Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and codices, and American
and English literary and historical manuscripts. The Visual Materials
Division services the Graphic Arts Collection, the Collection of Historic
Maps, the Theatre Collection, and the Numismatic Collection. The Seeley G.
Mudd Manuscript Library holds the Public Policy Papers and the University
Archives. The Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology and the Gest Oriental
Library and East Asian Collections are also located on the University campus.
The Fellowships, which have a value of $1500 each, are meant to help defray
expenses in traveling to and from Princeton and residing in Princeton during
the tenure of the Fellowship. The length of the Fellowship will depend on the
applicant's research proposal, but is normally one month. Fellowships are
tenable from May 1995 to April 1996.
There is no special application form. Applicants are asked to submit a rsum
and a brief research proposal to Fellowship Committee, Princeton University
Library, One Washington Road, Princeton, NJ 08544. The proposal should address
specifically the relevance of the Princeton University Library Collections to
the proposed research. The applicant should also arrange for two confidential
letters of recommendation to be sent to the Committee. The deadline for
applications is 31 January 1995. This announcement contains all the
information necessary to complete the application process.
