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 Arch and Anth Department and its Divisions for funding.
