About us

The Library aims to support CUED teaching and research activities by:

  • Collaborating and building partnerships with students and academics in order to meet their needs;
  • Providing the best and most relevant literature in print and electronic format;
  • Training users in the use of Library resources search;
  • Providing outstanding services like the Front Desk, Interlibrary Loan, Document Supply, Technical Report No., and Reference Service.

You can schedule individual sessions to get help with complex queries regarding database search and electronic resources.
