Student browsing books in library

The Casimir Lewy Library aims to provide the highest quality research resources for its students and research members. The Library can be found on the Second floor of the Faculty of Philosophy. It consists of about 17,000 books and journals, covering all the subjects taught in the Philosophy Tripos, and it's growing every year.

The University Library has an excellent Philosophy collection. Other Faculty Libraries such as Classics, HPS, SPS and Divinity also cover some areas of philosophy. Some College libraries also have good provision. See the Libraries Directory for more information.
