Princeton Theological Seminary Library
The Lobby and Concourse area display cases feature a collection of antiquities from the private collection of Professor James H. Charlesworth, as well as exhibits related to the past presidents of Princeton Seminary, the inauguration of President M. Craig Barnes, new faculty publications, and Dr. Daniel J. Theron, former professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary and a major donor to the new library. The second floor exhibit cases will feature a display containing artifacts representing cultures and religious traditions from around the world, many of them gathered in the earlier part of the 20th century as part of the Zwemer museum on world missions which was located in Stuart Hall from the 1930s through the 1950s. The third floor exhibit located in the Scholar Commons focuses on “Women in Sacred Song,” featuring rare books and hymnals related to women hymn writers in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.
We are all excited about the new library building, part of Princeton Theological
Campaign. As we continue to enjoy the new area of the building, which opened in
May 2013, the pre-existing north wing of the building is undergoing renovation. These
improvements are expected to take 6-9 months to complete.
Please visit the Maps
and Directions page for more information, including shelving locations, as well
as areas with study tables and soft seating options throughout the new building.
