The Cambridge University Library, though a collection built up for the university, is also open to the public, though in a very limited sense.

There are two ways you can get in:

1. Visit one of the exhibitions, specially laid out and themed to present visitors with some of the libraries treasures.

Or 2.  Apply for access to the main collection and experience it as the students do.

If you want access to the collection apply here.
