A full list of all the libraries in Cambridge can be found on the Libraries Directory.


Document Delivery Services

If you want to access material that is not available from a Cambridge library, please contact the Genetics Librarian in the first instance.

Where an article is not available from within Cambridge, researchers can apply for an Inter-Library Loan from another participating institution.

Both the University Library and the Betty & Gordon Moore Library operate an online service that is open to all registered users:

The University Library runs a free Scan & Deliver service for current University staff and students, which provides scans (within copyright limits) of materials that aren't available electronically. Scans can be requested through the Scan & Deliver form linked on the UL website.

Electronic Legal Deposit

Found an item on iDiscover that looks really good but you get a message telling you that "online access is restricted" and you have to use a "designated PC"? Not to worry. There's a Guide to help you with that! 

You can find one of these designated PCs in the Genetics Department Library. Terminals are also available in many other Faculty and Department Libraries, at the Moore Library and at the UL.

Close up of a person's hands scrolling on an iPhone with the SpaceFinder service displayed on the screenIs your usual study space no longer working for you? Need to get away from distractions and find a quiet spot to focus? Need to finish a group project and can't find a room for you all? Spacefinder could be the answer to all your problems!

By using your browser's inbuilt location service, Spacefinder will show you what places are available for you to work in and that are near to you. You can even filter results by what you want to do, what sort of atmosphere you want, or if you want to be able to buy a cup of coffee to fuel your study session! Handy!
