Cambridge Digital Library

Over the course of six centuries Cambridge University Library's collections have grown from a few dozen volumes into one of the world's great libraries, with an extraordinary accumulation of books, maps, manuscripts and journals. These cover every conceivable aspect of human endeavour, spanning most of the world's cultural traditions. While parts of the Library's manuscript collections have already been published in print, microfilm and digital formats, the university library is now building a substantial online resource so that their collections can be much more accessible to students, researchers and the wider public.

The first phase of the Cambridge Digital Library work covers the areas of faith and science. The Foundations of Faith Collections will include important works from many religious traditions, particularly Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism. The Foundations of Science Collection will focus on original scientific manuscripts, beginning with the papers of Isaac Newton and his contemporaries.

Please ask a member of library staff if you are experiencing difficulties when using any of these resources.
