How to get to the library

Cambridge Archive

Dedicated researchers may also like to visit the Society’s large archive, which is housed in Cambridge University Library.

The archive contains a large number of books, papers, newspaper cuttings and other material relating to psychical topics investigated by the SPR since the nineteenth century. See this list, which is incomplete and ends in 1998, but gives a good idea of the contents.
