Updated November 29, 2021: In line with the government’s public health guidance, the University of Cambridge expects face coverings to be worn in all our libraries by students, staff and visitors (unless exempt). Thank you for helping to reduce the risk of further disruption and illness. 

The Betty & Gordon Moore Library offers a range of online support services and ways you can access our collections, to help you learn, teach and research. See individual reduced contact services web pages for variations in availability and consult the website regularly as we start to bring back library services to almost pre-Covid levels.

***New for the start of the academic year is our updated physical sciences libguide. This guide has been developed to help signpost useful information for staff and students studying Physical Sciences at the University of Cambridge. As the University moves towards more normal ways of working this guide contains information on updated opening hours and services, using both the physical and online study spaces as well as tools to help you stay productive.***
