Welcome Students, New and Old

by the Wolfson Library

We at the Wolfson Library are very pleased to welcome students new and old. The college has been very quiet all summer without you!

For new students (and returning) we are running several tours during induction week, the schedule for which is in your welcome packs and posted at the Porters Lodge. But we're always happy to give you quick show-around, especially for your section of books, so do drop by any time. For a quick overview of the Wolfson Library, please see the video on our home page where you can also access the library catalogue and find out more about the library. For an excellent overview of databases and other electronic resources for your subject area, see the university LibGuides page. For academic skills useful during your time here at Cambridge, please see our Skills guide, and to suggest that we purchase a book from your reading lists, please use our handy form. We look forward to meeting you (or seeing you again!).

Love, your Library team (Meg, Laurence, Laura and Frieda).
