The Library

Accessed via the feature staircase of the Gutteridge Building, the library is a wonderfully light space with views across the Court at one end and across Jesus Lane to Malcolm Street at the other. It houses some 18,000 volumes. In addition to the general theological texts we have a Methodist library of 4,000-4,500 volumes including: a long run of the Arminian/Methodist Magazine from volume 1 to about 1880; some collections of 19th-century pamphlets; a near-complete run of Wesleyan Conference Minutes and of British Methodism since Union; plus the standard periodicals. The library policy can be found here

Registered students also have access to the libraries of the Cambridge Theological Federation and the Faculty of Divinity. The Cambridge University Library (UL) is available to those engaging in suitable research. It is a copyright library entitled to receive copies of all books published in the UK alongside the many internationally published books and journals  it collects.

Amongst other riches, Cambridge boasts significant collections of early biblical manuscripts and other key documents, for example the Westminster Confession, which can be viewed by arrangement.
