The library has various IT facilities to help you do your work.

There are computers, an MFD (MultiFunctional Device) for photocopying, printing, and scanning, and other dedicated machines for finding and accessing library resources. There are also docking solutions with large screen monitors and various cables that you can use to connect to your own device.

Please visit our IT Facilities website for information.

We welcome any Non-Medical Helper to help you with printing, copying or scanning. 

It is possible to use the copyright exception for disabled people to scan entire books for print-disabled students registered with the Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC). Please find more information on Scan & Deliver on the Cambridge libraries: accessibility & disability LibGuide, in the Alternate formats section.


Assistive technology

We do not offer any assistive technology at present, apart from three 'ergonomic' keyboards (smaller ones without the number keypad, which are kept in the Library Office, please ask if you need one). Please let us know if you need something specific to support you.

In the meantime, we recommend you visit the ADRC assistive technology page for information on assistive technology throughout the university and for training in its use.

The University Library offers an assistive Technology Room that is available to everyone. Please see the University Library assistive technology page.



IT Support at the department can help you with any queries you may have about IT. Their email is, or you can speak to a Computer Officer in Room M18.
