Newnham College Library

Newnham College Library is one of the best-stocked college libraries in Cambridge, with a strong collection of some 90,000 volumes, including approximately 6,000 rare books. The collection is kept as relevant, up-to-date and useful as possible by the annual purchase of over 1,000 new titles to support undergraduate study in all subjects. Newnham College Library also offers general and interdisciplinary reading, a good reference collection and a selection of periodicals and newspapers.

In January 2004, the collection returned from temporary accommodation to a greatly expanded and developed library, with a new building designed by John Miller + Partners linking the Grade II* listed 1897 library (Architect: Basil Champneys) and the 1982 Katharine Stephen Room (Architects: Van Heyningen & Haward).

In addition to books and study spaces, Newnham College Library has an IT suite, a Group Study Room, printing, scanning and photocopying facilities, and wireless internet access throughout the library.
