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.

New power points on desks

We have new power points on desks in the main reading room!

Thanks to Ally from Eyre Electrical and Tim from Jackson Environmental, who did the work, and Simon who came in early for them. Thanks to the UL, Estate Management and the Divisions in Arch and Anth for funding.

Anybody got any pictures of these new power points in operation yet?

(NB Haddon opening hours are now as for vacation, with Saturday closure.)

Lunch closures

The Haddon will close for lunch, 13:00-14:00, on the following days:

Wednesday 25 March

Thursday 26 March

Fri 27 March

Monday 30 March

Very sorry if that’s inconvenient.  Ring or email if it’s likely to cause problems that need a workaround.

And a reminder of something that the excitement about new desk power points has elbowed off the front page: we’ll be closed on 3 April (Good Friday) and 6 April (Easter Monday).
