Who can use the Library and Archive?

Girton College Library is open to all current members of Girton College, and to others by appointment only.  Girton College Archive is open to anyone with a research enquiry but by appointment only, noting that there is currently quite a long wait for appointments. The Special Collections, although part of the Library, use the same arrangements as the Archive.

Please use the sections below to guide you to the information you need when arranging your visit.

See the Girton's Library for lots of information about getting the most use of the facilities. There will be continued changes to our opening arrangements for the academic year 2021-2022.

If you wish to use material held in the Archive or Special Collections, please see:

Normally we welcome the chance for you to revisit the Library but we would ask you to email library@girton.cam.ac.uk or phone 01223 338970 in advance. However, for academic year 2020-2021, we ask that you do not visit the Library.

If you wish to see material in the Archive (e.g. the albums of Matriculation photos) or Special Collections, please see:
