While Princeton students who write doctoral dissertations and senior theses are required to deposit copies of their work with the University Library, a student who completes a master's thesis may choose whether or not to deposit it with the library.

Historical Photograph Collection, Student Photographers Series
With the introduction of the Kodak box camera in 1888, many students began to take their own photographs. Princeton students were taking and possibly developing their own photographs on campus as early as the 1870s and early 1880s, perhaps in the darkrooms in the John C. Green School of Science.The photographs in the Student Photographers Series comprise what must be a small proportion of the photographs taken by Princeton students in the late nineteenth century.
