If you are taking time away in the vacation, read our Information Skills Blog for a refresher about all the fantastic resources you can still access while at a distance from Cambridge. You can also borrow books and take them with you; they are now being issued until 18th January.

If you are staying in Cambridge, the library will be open throughout much of the vacation. It will only be closed for two short periods: from 6pm on Monday December 24th until 7am on Thursday 27th December and again from 6pm on Monday December 31st until 7am on Wednesday January 2nd.

Please do continue to get in touch. Library staff are here to help by email, phone or Skype up to the 21th December. The library email will be checked again from 2 January.
