Visitors should make themselves known to the Department Reception and to the library team on each visit. If you have a disability or injury that affects your use of the library, please let us know, preferably in advance, of any assistance you might need.
Library users can borrow books, theses, journals and DVDs. The number of items you can borrow and how long you can take them for depends on your status:
Items will be renewed automatically until their maximum renewal period, for all users except distance and visiting scholars.
You can check on iDiscover ("My Library Account" - Raven login required) to see all the items you have from any Cambridge library and their due dates. You can also use iDiscover to search all Cambridge libraries and place requests for items.
