The Whipple Library was founded on the gift of Robert Stewart Whipple of his rare scientific books to the University in 1944, and is the largest specialist library in the history and philosophy of science and medicine in the UK. It functions as the Departmental Library and provides the basis for research and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate level.
The library staff aim to provide an informative and friendly service for all readers. If you have any questions about the service please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help you.

Long vacation hours and borrowing
The Library will be open from 9.15am to 5.00pm throughout the long vacation (from Thursday 13 June), and we welcome regulars and visitors to use the space during this period. Please look out for short notice of any unavoidable changes to these times via the hps-discussion list or our Twitter account (@hpslib). Undergraduates returning next year are welcome to borrow books for the vacation until Tuesday 8 October. The loan period for all other borrowers remains three weeks as normal. We'll be glad to receive renewal requests by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'll be away from Cambridge and can't return or renew books in person.
