The Faculty of Architecture & History of Art’s collections in support of the study of art and architecture at Cambridge are rich, diverse and in many cases extraordinarily deep. Print and electronic materials are collected as broadly as possible for all geographic areas and periods.

All periodicals are for reference only and may not be removed from the Library. Current periodicals are kept in the History of Art Room on the ground floor. Our bound journals can be found in stacks 33-63. 

Dissertations are for reference only and may not be photocopied. The Library houses a collection of mainly architectural essays and MPhils, and a small selection of more recent History of Art MPhils. Please email or ask at the staff issue desk if you wish to consult a dissertation.
