King's Library launches Amazon store

Amazon logo

King's College Library has launched an Amazon store on its web pages. Please help fund the Library by buying goods from Amazon through the Library pages. You can search all of and the Library will get a referral fee from Amazon if you buy anything.

The prices are the same as if you went directly to Amazon and none of your personal details are passed to the college. Please visit the Library page and bookmark it for future use. There is also a page featuring books from the faculty reading lists for students.

The Library preserves an archive of rare books and papers for students, the academic community and the interested public. Holdings include first editions of Copernicus' De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres)(1543), Robert Hooke's Micrographia (1665) and the first editions of works by Isaac Newton and Jane Austen.

The Library also holds contemporary books for student use, and a unique collection of resources on Global warming for anyone interested in the subject. For more information see the Library section.
