Using the Library in 2021/22
In line with Scottish Government and University guidance, we are delighted to be able to welcome our students, staff and all external users into our library buildings to study, browse and borrow books. Health and safety remains our top priority, and plans may change if guidance is updated. To keep us all safe we are still encouraging library users to
- wear face coverings. https://www.ed.ac.uk/news/covid-19/covid-measures/face-coverings
- use our hand sanitising stations
- Use cleaning materials provided to clean desk surfaces and computer accessories
We are continuing our services for library users who prefer to work remotely or are unable to come onto campus, with digital library resources that include over 2 million e-books.
