There follows a list of owned ebooks, hosted on a variety of supplier platforms, which have been in demand over the Lent Term. They have all been upgraded to allow greater concurrent access, as a result of multiple turnaway notifications received by the ebooks@cambridge team.
All of these ebook titles can be found in iDiscover and can be accessed on and off campus with a Raven login.
“The THOMIST appeals to a wide international readership in the university, the seminary, and the Church. In the tradition and spirit of Thomas Aquinas, it seeks to promote original and penetrating inquiry into the full range of contemporary philosophical and theological questions. It undertakes particularly to support sustained discussion of issues of philosophy and systematic theology, where such discussion can be advanced by creative use of the thought of Aquinas and significant authors in the Thomistic tradition. In this way The Thomist seeks to cultivate a fruitful dialogue between modern and contemporary philosophical systems and the classical tradition of philosophy and Christian theology.
“The Thomist (ISSN 0040-5325) is published by Dominican Fathers Province of St. Joseph.”
Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 29 (1965) to present.

The Third Papyrus Curatorial and Conservations Meeting.
Following the first two successful meetings at the British Museum, this meeting will take place on 29–30 June 2017 at Cambridge University Library. An international group of professionals – conservators, curators and researchers- will convene to present and discuss aspects of their work in progress. In the second annual conference, the group agreed to a travelling meeting. This arrangement should facilitate a closer look at collections of the hosting institutions and also open up opportunities for local professionals – including those non-specialists who are in charge of special collections- to join the group and gain a more far-reaching outlook.
In Cambridge large numbers of papyri are held not only in the University Library and the Fitzwilliam Museum but also in many colleges and related libraries. Some of these are well known from literature, while others have remained undiscovered. For a number of reasons, neither category stipulates an easy access or a permanently secured state of conservation. In this meeting we are hoping to present results of successful work, though the emphasis will be on sharing issues and discussing best practice.
For this year’s meeting we are looking forward to welcoming an group of presenters from all over the world and sharing our experiences with an equally diverse audience.
Please find the programme below.
