Easter Term Notices!



Welcome back everyone. Easter is always a busy term so please take a moment to read the notices below to help you get the most out of the library.


Returning vacation loans

Books currently on Vacation loan will need to be returned or renewed by Saturday 28th April.

If you find you cannot renew online it is most likely because you have reached your renewal limit, in this case you can return the book on the Self-Service machine in the library and then immediately re-borrow (which resets the renewal period).


Term-time borrowing

Term-time borrowing starts on Tuesday 24th April (anything borrowed from this point will be the usual 7 day or overnight loan period) https://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/college-life/library/borrowing


Clear desks policy

We’ve added a few extra study spaces in Left Cloister. In order to help ensure as many people as possible can find a study space we ask you not to reserve desks by leaving work or personal belongings there when you are taking anything more than a short break from the library. We will place reminder slips on desks that we are concerned about and will clear your belongings (laptops and all) if you’ve been gone for an extended period.

Please be willing to listen to others and move your work if it has spread onto another study space (particularly on the tables of four).

Clear Desk Policy


Take a break – tea and biscuits in the Pepys cloisters– every Thursday at 3pm

It’s important to take regular, short study breaks & to stay hydrated during intensive study periods. In that spirit the Library will be providing tea/coffee/juice and biscuits/fruit every Thursday  in the Pepys cloisters through Easter term. Come and join us for a break and drink.

Tea and biscuits

Don’t forget that there are plenty of tips and hints about navigating exams and Easter term in the library’s welfare section (Middle room, left cloister) and in right cloister outside the library office. https://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/college-life/library/welfare-section
