All alumni are able to access the main University Library for free.

Visiting and borrowing

To find out more about using the UL and the application process for getting your reader’s card, please visit the University Library website. (The reader’s card is different to your CAMCard.)

The UL online

In partnership with the UL we also offer all alumni online access to selected journals through JSTOR. Information about JSTOR and the collections it encompasses can be found on our JSTOR access webpage.

There are a number of other ways to explore the treasures of the UL online; Cambridge Digital Library hosts archives, manuscripts and rare books from the UL’s Special Collections that can be browsed from anywhere in the world.

Visit the exhibitions virtually at - why not try Literature of the Liberation, or The moving word: French medieval manuscripts in Cambridge?
