The Betty & Gordon Moore Library



University of Cambridge library users

Current staff (including post-docs) and students of Cambridge University who hold a valid University card do not need to separately apply for borrowing rights with the library. For some Visiting Academics and other users who do not have a valid University card, please talk to your departmental or college card office rep about obtaining or renewing a University card. 

Cambridge Master of Arts (MA) degree holders needing to obtain library access should, in the first instance, obtain a white University Library access card. This can be done by registering at the main University Library building on West Road. Once a white access card has been obtained, use of the Moore Library will be available during staffed hours only.

Isaac Newton Institute programme participants

Isaac Newton Institute programme participants can apply to join the library for the duration of their working stay in Cambridge. To validate your temporary card for library use, please apply at the Service desk Monday to Friday 09:30-17.00, or Saturdays 09:30-12:30.
