Cambridge University Library is one of the world’s most important repositories of the recorded word – in media ranging from 3000-year-old bone to the latest digital resources.

At the vanguard of new developments in scholarship, Cambridge University Library (UL) has been amassing extraordinary collections for centuries, through both legal deposit and generous benefaction. The history of Cambridge University Library is synonymous with a history of enlightened support.

As a research and teaching library, it sits at the heart of academic life at Cambridge. As a resource of international importance, it supports scholarship on a global scale.

Major opportunities exist to develop the Library: its collections, its places, its people, its many innovative and exciting projects and to facilitate its evolution into a combined print and digital library. Support for the UL will have an enduring impact and will resonate far beyond the boundaries of academe.

Cambridge’s collections have multiple lives, embracing public and private histories, personal and scientific interest and the past and the present. They illuminate the wider activities, histories and environments of the people who made them and the worlds they represent. We draw upon our collections to conduct pioneering research. By investing in our collections and museums, our ambition is to deepen public understanding of cultures and peoples across the planet.
