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


DS-Print Service 

DS-Print is utilised by the University Managed Cluster Service (MCS) and is additionally available to any computer connected to the Cambridge University Data Network (CUDN) or beyond, subject only to the individual user having authority to use a particular printer or Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) providing for print, photocopy and scan requirements.

The main library MFD is located on the ground floor and is available to current University of Cambridge staff and students, non-University members and Alumni.

To use this machine you will need a DS (Desktop Services) account. For current staff and students, this is available from, and is administered by, the University Information Service - details of the service and copies of the account application form are available online. For non-University members and Alumni, an account will be issued upon registration at the main University Library building.


Networked and Wireless Printing

Printing requests can be sent from any MCS PC, located throughout the building. Current staff and students can login with their current RAVEN account. Non-Unversity members and alumni access is via one of three machines, located on the Ground Floor - see a member of staff for directions and access requirements.

For printing from a MCS PC, the Moore Library MFD location name is "UL_FindMe" - select which credit you wish to use during the print process. 

If printing from a laptop for the first time, you will need to install the DS-Print Service. See instructions found here on how to do this. Follow the link "How can I print?" and then follow the 2nd set of instructions for DS-Print Service for Windows / MacOS. The Moore does not currently support Mobility Print


Account Printer Credit

Desktop Services (DS) account printer credit can be used to print, scan or photocopy. You can purchase online credit with a bank card in these places:

  • University of Cambridge card holders can purchase credit online here.
  • Other library users can purchase credit online here.

Please note: These links will allow you to credit either your 'Common Balance' or 'UL Balance'. It has proven cost-prohibitive to allow users to use any other lines of credit they may have access to, such as a 'Maths Balance'.

  • £0.20 - A3 Black & White

The copiers accept most British coins except the new £1 coin and the 1p. Nor do they accept notes. Unfortunately, the units are not able to give change, so please make sure you use the correct money.
