Group Aims

Cambridge University Libraries aim to work together to provide an unrivalled education and student experience.

  • Our students will have appropriate access to the print and digital materials they require for their studies in Cambridge
  • Students can locate the materials they need through online reading lists available via Moodle and iDiscover
  • We encourage students and teachers to recommend items to be purchased and they receive consistent support
  • Academics provide libraries with reading lists in a timely manner to ensure that materials are purchased in line with the reading lists framework

Supporting online learning and teaching

Cambridge University Libraries are supporting the changes to online teaching and learning. Information and case studies of good practice are available for library staff to explore.
