Library computers and internet access
Data sockets are underneath every desk in the Main Library. There are two at the desk near the entrance, and four in the Balfour Room. In addition to 23 fixed data points, the library also provides wireless network connection. Please be considerate in using computers and try not to disturb other library readers.
In the Balfour Room there are six networked PCs, with two printers and a scanner. These computers provide a wide range of programmes, file stores, and - through the University Library web page - a vast network of databases, electronic journals, and gateways for academic work and research.
The University Library provides access to many electronic resources, including ebook collections, the JSTOR journals archive and the Justis CELEX legal site, most of which are available both within the UL itself and from all computers with an IP address within the Cambridge University domain. Access is granted by the host computers after checking domain name, or through Raven passwords. All new undergraduate and postgraduate students will automatically receive a UIS password (which enables Raven access) from University Information Services when they register.
Free ebook collections
Microfilm and microfiche readers and a microfilm printer are available for use in the library.
