Using Other Cambridge Libraries
The limited size and scope of the Institute's library is compensated for by a number of other relevant and more comprehensive libraries elsewhere in the University; visitors to the Institute are usually able to use these libraries by arrangement. Please ask the Institute library staff for a letter of introduction to access the following libraries:
This library houses the University's main collections in the physical sciences, technology and mathematics, and is located to the rear of the Isaac Newton Institute. Opening hours and further information is available at www.lib.cam.ac.uk/BGML/.
This library has specific responsibility for biological, chemical, earth and environmental sciences. It is located in the centre of Cambridge on the New Museums Site. Opening hours and further information is available at www.lib.cam.ac.uk/CSL/.
This is the main library for the University. It is a legal deposit library and contains material on a wide range of subjects. Further details can be found at www.lib.cam.ac.uk.
Visitors and their families may arrange to use the public library, Cambridge Central Library, in Lion Yard, Cambridge CB2 3QD (telephone 65252). Anyone wishing to do this should take a letter from the Institute library to present, together with a means of identification, to the staff at the registration desk at the public library.
