Clare College Cambridge

The Fellows' Library

The College, the second oldest in Cambridge, possesses a library of approximately 6000 volumes including some manuscripts and incunabula. Its early printed holdings are noted in H.M.Adams Catalogue of books and the Short-title catalogue. In 1971 the College received a bequest of bird books from the Reverend F.I.Wane. These have been deposited as a named collection in the Cambridge University Library.

The Fellows' Library is currently closed to enquiries and research visits. A small part of the collection may be accessible, but it is likely that most of the collection will remain unavailable for consultation until May 2023.
