Looking for a specific item?


The easiest way to track it down is by using the library catalogue, iDiscover. Type a few words from the item's title into the search box, and the results will tell you what is available in Cambridge, and how you can access it.


Looking for resources on a given topic?


Add a few keywords to the search box on iDiscover. Be careful with your search terms, and try synonyms if you're not getting the results you hoped for. 

If you need help searching iDiscover, take a look at the libguide or speak to a member of library staff.
