iDiscover: Cambridge University Library Catalogue
Old Library and other special collections materials are currently being catalogued and added to iDiscover (the online catalogue of the University of Cambridge). So far, incunabula and virtually all sixteenth-century printed books (including the Thomas Smith collection) are catalogued online as are many of the titles formerly owned by David Hughes and Isaac Milner.
