Old Library

  • MCOL
  • Collection
  • 1428 - present

The Old Library, which is distinct from the Pepys Library, is Magdalene’s collection of rare books and manuscripts which has evolved throughout the history of the College. The Old Library also collects modern publications relating to the College and to Cambridge more widely. There are also a small number of ephemeral items and archive-type collections in the Old Library, and it is this material which we aim to enter into this catalogue. For advice on locating the printed books and manuscripts in the Old Library online, please consult the following page:
