Discover Your Libraries

With lots of libraries dotted across Cambridge, it can be difficult to get to them all, so check out our virtual library induction from the Biological Sciences Libraries Team.

Finding Physical Resources

Any physical resources can be found by searching on IDiscover, the University of Cambridge Libraries catalogue. Filter by resource types or for the Libraries you wish to use. Many of our libraries have a dedicated computer you can use to access the iDiscover Calatogue, but you can also access the catalogue from your own computer, or even using your mobile phone.


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!

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 Library. Terminals are also available in many other Faculty and Department Libraries, at the Moore Library and at the University Library.
