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 10 March
Return date Friday 25 April from 10 March for most of the vacation.
And, from 10 March, 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 online up to Sunday 9 March.
After that, you can recall a book by asking us of the Haddon team. You won’t, we hope, expect the book to reappear quite so fast once people start to leave Cambridge.
Restricted-access books will be due for return, during the vacation, at close of business on the day following the loan. As an experiment, we shall be prepared to renew restricted-access loans, on request, for the length of the vacation.
A note, if needed, for some of the Haddon’s long-term users. We don’t any longer have a big recall of books before vacation loans are allowed, and we don’t any longer levy a 10 pound surcharge for late books at the end of every term. (We’ll be using the surcharge again at the end of the academic year, but that’s in June.) We tried our new end-of-term procedures in March 2013, and they worked well enough to carry on with.National Student Survey
For final year students–your chance to give your views about what you liked, and didn’t, about your time in Cambridge.
The results feed into year-on-year comparative data, and are available to help prospective students make decisions about where and what to study.
Local incentive is a prize draw: two double May Ball tickets — one for St John’s College and one for Trinity College, drawn from all students who access the survey.
