The Betty & Gordon Moore Library is currently offering an expanded range of online support services and new ways you can access our collections to help you learn, teach and research.

See individual zero contact services web pages for variations in availability. Please be aware that, due to the current lockdown restrictions, all services will be subject to change, possibly, at short notice and some services may have to be suspended. 

The Betty & Gordon Moore Library


Catalogue Terminals

The Catalogue Terminals are located on each floor. These machines are available to all walk-in users and do not require a user ID or password. They are intended for catalogue searching and use of the University webpages. It is not possible to print or copy files from these machines.


UIS-Managed Desktop Services Cluster

University Members

There are also a number of networked Desktop Services (DS) machines on each floor of the building. The Desktop Services cluster is managed by the Moore Library in collaboration with the University Computing Service to provide a full range of computing services to users. These machines provide a choice of either a Windows or a LINUX user interface.

These machines require a DS account (available from, and administered by the Computing Service), which is only available to University of Cambridge staff and students - copies of the service and the account application form are available online.

Non-University Members

We also have 3 networked Desktop Services (DS) machines on the ground floor that can also be accessed by non-University members. These readers will need to have registered with the UL first. They can then login by entering the five-digit V-number from their UL card. Anyone having trouble accessing these machines should enquire at the Service Desk.

For details on obtaining DS printer credit please see here.


Electronic Legal Deposit

CD-ROM Terminal

A single, non-networked PC is situated on the ground floor of the Library, for the purpose of viewing CD-ROMs and disks from the non-book media collection. No password is required, and printing facilities are not available.


IT Support Services

The Moore Library provides training and support for users of the University's networked electronic resources. Subject specialist staff are available to advise on the selection and use of electronic journals, databases, and reference works.
