You will have access to many libraries whilst studying in Cambridge, including your own College, the main University Library (the UL) and many department and faculty libraries. The Cambridge Libraries Gateway is a good starting point for for information on library locations and opening times, how to use the libraries and their facilities, and how to search for books, journals, and other resources.

Of particular interest will be College libraries, the University Library, and the three libraries of the departments involved in teaching this course.

Faculty and departmental libraries hold tours and inductions to their collections and facilities at the start of term, and the UL runs introductory sessions throughout the year. We recommend attending these as these sessions give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the libraries, register, and meet the staff.

Past student work

A sample of essays and dissertations from previous students on this course is available in the Whipple Library. You can also consult past coursework from other courses run by the departments involved. The department libraries can provide help and advice on this.


You have access to computing facilities in all three departments. For more information on available resources, see the links below:
