Databases List

The main list of databases is organized by subject area and connects to the Subject Librarians list. Each subject specialist is expected to curate a small set of databases into “Core” and “Supplementary” sets for each subject area that they handle. Questions? Email dmg@princeton.edu

Librarian-created Events and Workshops

Event Planning on Connecting includes guidelines and process expectations.

Before you schedule a new workshop, please consult the two calendars below as well as the University's Academic Calendar.

What is my role as an event organizer? What am I responsible for? 
An event organizer is responsible for leading plans and executing the event/workshop. Depending on the details of your event, the organizer will function as the point person for event planning and logistics, including establishing budget and funding source, booking a venue; ordering food/beverages; making arrangements with Library or University Facilities; working with OLC for publicity, materials, and giveaways; arranging for cleaning services, establishing budget and funding source, setting up events and registration in LibCal, coordinating speakers (travel, honorarium, other accommodations) and other logistics as identified.

  • The event organizer should either be the lead contact on the day, or find appropriate staff as a delegate.
  • Upon completion of the event, event organizers should add in the final number of attendees in the LibCal event and enter the data in LibInsight.
  • If you are planning a Zoom webinar, contact OLC at pulcomm@princeton.edu for hosting.

Princeton has a new weekly Posters on Instagram process for highlighting events
