    Digitising the Newton Papers

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 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 Cambridge University Library will have an enduring impact and will resonate far beyond the boundaries of academe.
