Supporting the Library
Future Foundations - The Campaign for Magdalene
Future Foundations - The Campaign for Magdalene is a five year campaign aiming to raise £25 million to secure undergraduate bursaries, support postgraduate students and early career Fellows, build a new College Library and restore the iconic Pepys Building.
The building of a new College Library will offer both spacious work areas with excellent IT facilities and the creation of a social hub. Planning permission has been granted for an innovative sustainable building which incorporates a library, archive and gallery whilst remaining sympathetic to the architecture of the College.

Throughout its history the College Library has greatly benefitted from book donations, and we continue to be very grateful for the support we receive in this way. However, constraints on space and resources necessarily mean that we must be selective in what books we can accept. The primary purpose of the College Library is to support undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses. We also welcome donations of publications by members of the College.
Potential donors are advised to contact the Library in advance, and if possible provide a list of books being offered for us to check against our current holdings.
Donations and bequests are accepted on the understanding that the books become the property of the College on receipt, and may be removed at any time in the future. Items that are not retained (either at the time of receipt or subsequently) may be passed to other libraries, sold or otherwise disposed of, the proceeds of any sales being used to the benefit of the College.
