Whipple Library

Department of History and Philosophy of Science
Free School Lane and Exterior of HPS

The Whipple Library occupies part of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science on Free School Lane in the centre of Cambridge. The main entrance is shared with the Department and the Whipple Museum, and still bears the name of our predecessors, the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry, above the door.

The Library is currently closed to readers and other visitors. If you need to pick up a Click & Collect order or return books, please go to the front door of the HPS Department on Free School Lane.

Step free access to the library via the Whipple Museum's group entrance is available by prior arrangement. If possible, please contact us in advance for assistance and to discuss any specific requirements if necessary. Library staff will be happy to help as far as possible.
