The Geography Department Library supports the teaching of the Geographical Tripos and MPhil courses in the department. Over 26,000 titles are currently held, including 23,500 monographs, 2,000 offprints and 300 series (working papers from other university geography departments). There is also a collection of rare books, The Clark Collection, which was bequethed to the university in 1910 by John Willlis Clark, former Registrary of the University and Secretary of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society. These are mostly 18th and 19th century travel books and are available on request. They may only be consulted in the library under the supervision of a member of staff.

All titles held in the library have been added to the University Library's online Newton catalogue. Most journal consultations are electronic and members of the department can access thousands of titles through the University Library (UL). There are also a wide range of other electronic resources available.
