Researchers are welcome to consult Old Library and Special Collections materials by appointment with the Fellow Librarian, Dr Tim Eggington.

Please email library@queens.cam.ac.uk with your research topic and, if possible, the references of the items you wish to consult.

You will be asked to fill in a Reader Registration Form, prior to your visit or on the day. Please bring your CamCard if you are a member of the University of Cambridge or a proof of ID with photograph if you are an external visitor.

Photography is at the discretion of the Library staff and for private study only.

If you are not able to visit in person, there are various ways in which we can help you:

Enquiries: staff can answer any queries about our collections and check material on behalf of readers in order to answer specific questions.

Digital photography: staff can provide free low resolution digital scans of Queens' holdings for personal research use only, on the condition that the material needed is suitable for scanning and the volume of the request is reasonable.

Please note that the Old Library will be closed from Wednesday 10 midday to Friday 19 August and from Monday 29 August to Friday 2 September. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
