The Canonical Stack—book sculpture by Christopher Evans and Issam Kourbaj (photograph, David Webb). The sculpture was an arrangement of books, mainly from the Haddon Library, and was photographed in situ there on 8 March 2008. All the books are now back in their normal use.
The Haddon Library serves the staff, research students and undergraduates of the University, together with members of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society. Staff and students of other Universities are welcome to read here, on production of evidence of academic bona fides. Other visitors should enquire in advance.
You can donate to the Haddon Library online. Or, if you prefer, read the library's appeal and then donate online. Start by clicking the 'Give Online' button above. Thanks!

Use Newton when LibrarySearch crashes
Newton is older and clunkier and doesn’t let you search all the libraries at one go — but just now Newton is staying up rather better than LibrarySearch, and you might find you prefer it.
If you’re in LibrarySearch and want to slip over to Newton, you’ll see the word ‘Newton’ among those options shown in the black line at the top of the screen. Click on ‘Newton’ and you’ll be taken straight there.Powerpoint demonstrations of Haddon Library ways in McDonald Institute Seminar Room
