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 – and don't forget to check the 'Haddon Library Appeal' radio button. Thanks!

Vacation borrowing starts Monday 9 March
Anything you borrow in the Haddon, from that date and for most of the vacation, will have a return date of Friday 24 April.
Once vacation borrowing starts, you will be able to renew your existing loans, in most cases, for the whole of the vac.
If you want a book for the vacation, and someone else has it out, you can recall it. You can do that online, in the usual way, up to Sunday 8 March, or by asking us of the Haddon team after vacation borrowing has started. Note that you can’t expect recalled books to come back quite so fast once people start to leave Cambridge.
And here’s a reminder of how to recall books online.New ebooks!
Get to them using the links shown below.
Better still, you can get to them by their entries in the online catalogue. Look for them there as you’d look for any other title, and follow the instructions.
And more are on their way!
