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.
