These often showcase rare treasures from the Special Collections, and provide insight into history, science, literature, and the development of world-changing ideas. 

This section will cover:

  • Current and upcoming exhibitions and events
  • Online exhibitions
For SLOs:

If you wish to bring a school group to see a library exhibition, or view exhibition materials online, our Contact a Library page gives you details of libraries you can get in touch with, or you can contact the University Library's exhibitions team.

For Teachers:

To discuss arranging school visits to view Cambridge library exhibitions, please contact your Schools Liaison Officer in the first instance. All SLOs cover a targeted Link Area in the UK, so each area has a particular SLO to contact. 

Look up your Link Area and SLO on the College Area Links website
