The Betty & Gordon Moore Library



Please note that all persons admitted to the Library are required to register as library users. User registration and card validation for 24-hour access must be done in person between 0930 and 1630 Monday - Friday.


University of Cambridge library users

Current staff (including post-docs) and students of Cambridge University no longer need to apply for borrowing rights to the library. For users who do not have a valid University card, please talk to your departmental or college card office rep about getting or renewing a University card. 

External library users

This form is for academic, commercial, or private researchers who have no official connection to Cambridge University, but would like to make use of the Library on a reference-only basis. Please note that if you wish to access the printer/copier or make use of a desktop PC (which will include access to ejournals etc.) then you will need to register with the main University Library before visiting the Moore. Access to IT resources can only be setup by the UL admissions. UL admissions charges for external library users can be found here.

If you simply wish to use the Moore library stock and won't need access to IT resources then simply complete the above form and bring it with you on your first visit to the library and hand it the staff at the Service Desk.


This form is for those who would simply like to make a one-off visit to the Library, and should be seen as the equivalent of signing a visitors' book.
