Bookable Medical Library spaces
The library training room and soundproof library pod should now be booked online. University users go to the bookings website and log in with Raven to make a booking. CUH staff please contact the custodial team at the building reception who will make a booking for you. Library staff are no longer involved in room bookings. If the space is empty, you can still use it, however, a person with a booking will always have the priority.
There are 2 computer networks available in the Medical Library: University of Cambridge, and Addenbrooke’s.
University of Cambridge
We have 7 PCs in the Share space, and 6 in the Training room (available when training is not taking place). These PCs all have the following software and programs installed:
- Microsoft Office
- Endnote, Mendeley and Zotero
Use your Library card number to log in (CRSid for clinical students and some other University of Cambridge staff/students).
Printing is available from University-networked library PCs, and the printer is also enabled for photocopying and scanning. Please note that it is not possible to print from the NHS-networked (Addenbrooke’s) PCs in the library.
Uni of Cam wifi is available to anyone with a Raven login. We can also issue visitor logins for any of our other library users — just speak to library staff.
Uni of Cam – Guest is available to visitors and guests of the University. Connect using your email address or social media account.
