Access online and zero-contact services across our libraries. Limited in-person services are available at the UL and in some Faculty and Department libraries. Visit Using the Library for information on services and support to help you study, teach and research.

Cambridge University Library


We know all our readers are very keen to get back to the libraries, and we are continually reviewing our in-person services in line with guidance from the UK government and the University. The safety of library users and staff is a priority in the decisions we take.

In order to maintain resilient services that support current students and researchers at the University during this very restrictive time, it has been necessary to limit the availability of some services. We know how frustrating it is for our many readers who are not yet able to access the full range of library services – we really hope to be able to welcome you back as soon as it is safe and possible to do so. Please explore our online resources and remote support services and our zero-contact services for other ways to access the libraries.
