The Cambridge Room’s materials are historically valuable and unavailable elsewhere. All materials are non-circulating and can only be used in the Cambridge Room. We require visitors to store their bags and outerwear in one of the lockers provided. Food, drink, and pens are not allowed in the Cambridge Room – an accidental spill or slip can permanently damage materials. We also ask that users handle all materials with care.
