Libraries and Archives

The College’s books are divided broadly into three collections: the Medieval and Musical Manuscripts (which are now deposited in the University Library); the Perne Library; and the Ward Library.  The Archives are stored separately from the library collections and contain records dating back to the foundation of the College in 1284.
