A peaceful space for reading and learning

As a member of Hughes Hall, you can use our peaceful library for your reading and learning. Open 24/7, the Edwin Leong Library is a beautifully light and airy study space overlooking the lawn. We have 60 study spaces on two floors, with step-free access to all areas and three height-adjustable desks. As well as stocking core textbooks for undergraduate and many masters courses, we have a growing collection of resources to support wellbeing and personal development. Our friendly and experienced professional librarians are on hand to advise you on finding and using information resources, and to support you in developing and enhancing your academic skills for study, research and exams.

Full information on using the Library can be found on the student Library page on this website, and on the Library Services page of the Hughes Hall Moodle site www.vle.cam.ac.uk including Library induction videos and FAQs. You can contact Kate Arhel (Librarian) and Catherine Munford (Deputy Librarian) by email: library@hughes.cam.ac.uk.

As well as being a peaceful space for reading and learning, our library house special collections.
