Reading Lists Online

Reading Lists Online provide easy access to your course reading lists. They show the location and availability of print books and link directly to electronic articles, books, websites, videos and digitised chapters. You can filter a list by priority, 'Required', 'Recommended', 'Further Reading', or by section or item type.

Reading lists can be accessed from the Reading Lists Online website or from your course Moodle site.

For more information about Reading Lists Online see the libguide.



Cambridge University Libraries have created a number of online libguides full of useful information and links to resources. There are libguides on subjects (including Zoology), physical and digital collections, accessing resources and study skills. See the LibGuides homepage for more information.



CamGuides is a set of resources for students beginning undergraduate degrees at the University of Cambridge. CamGuides is designed to help students prepare for their studies in Cambridge, regardless of their subject or college. It focuses on some of the academic and information practices and skills that students commonly engage in, or require, for their degrees.


Project and dissertation examples

Examples of Part II Zoology projects across different topics are available for reference use from the Library Office. Examples of Part II BBS dissertations are also available. They may only be consulted in the Library during opening hours and cannot be photocopied or scanned.


Exam papers

A collection of past examination papers are kept in the Library Office. These are for reference use in the library only, but may be photocopied or scanned. These may also be available to download from your course's Moodle site.


Library guides

Guides to the Balfour Library for undergraduate students are available to download, either from the Library Guides page, or from the Balfour (Zoology) Library Information section of your course's Moodle site, as well as the Balfour (Zoology) Library Guide to Electronic Information Resources. There are also hard copies for reference and to take away from the Library.

Also on Moodle you will find links to the library website and the online library catalogue.
