About Unlocking Libraries

The Unlocking Libraries Project from Cambridge University Libraries aims to help University of Cambridge Schools Liaison Officers (SLOs) and Access Officers, as well as interested school teachers, find out more about the Widening Participation support available from Cambridge libraries, including College libraries, Faculty and Departmental libraries and the University Library.

These resources, sessions and support can be integrated into outreach and Widening Participation activities or used to supplement online learning for school students looking ahead to Higher Education opportunities.

 

How To Use This Site

For SLOs:

Schools Liaison Officers and Access Officers can use this site to find out more about the support we can offer, and help develop outreach and Widening Participation activities with Cambridge University Libraries.

For Teachers:

Teachers can browse study skills and learning resources that can be used in classrooms, or by students at their own pace, to help them with exams, projects and independent study.  This site will also help develop an understanding of how academic libraries can support school students in their current learning and their transition to Higher Education.
