Books on Study Skills & Well Being

The AHA Library will not be resuming its usual library services as was pre-lockdown. The new guidelines and services will take some getting used to and we appreciate that. We've taken measures to keep you and your colleagues safe when using the replacement 'Click & Collect' service. We are striving to ensure that you maintain as much access as possible to our collections whilst not putting anyone at risk, which is why we're also offering a 'Scan & Deliver' service. We work to current governmental and institutional guidelines, so bear with us if we have to reduce services, or even increase services, according to latest advice. Whatever happens we'll always be checking so please do get in touch if you have any queries, concerns, or even to say something positive and inspiring. We're here to support you throughout your studies, pandemic or no.


Architecture & History of Art Collections

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. Borrowing is limited to staff and students of Cambridge University. Visitors are welcome to consult our collection but must contact the Library beforehand.

Access to the Library & Support 

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic the library is offering new replacement zero-contact and in-person library services, you may book on our Library Services page. New services include Click & Collect, Browse & Borrow and Scan & Deliver. Please bear in mind that the Cambridge University Library offers similar services and more.


Returning AHA Library Items 


If you wish to return library items to us, please use the faculty building's new one-way system to access our out-of-hours returns box. The one-way system begins at the Architecture Department main door and follows the central corridor past reception and the library, to the other end of the building where you will find the returns box by the History of Art Department main door.

It is possible to return UL books to the University Library between 10.15am and 3.45pm, Monday to Friday.

If you are a recent graduate, member of staff or visiting scholar in the UK who has now left the University and are unable to return to Cambridge, you can request a pre-paid returns label to return your books by freepost.


Please feel free to get in touch via email or telephone. We welcome all enquiries and try our best to meet the needs of our library users.
