Information about Library & University Collections services in response to COVID-19

This page will be kept up to date with information about Library & University Collections facilities and services.

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 NHS 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 asking library users to

  • wear face coverings
  • use our hand sanitising stations
  • Use cleaning materials provided to clean desk surfaces and computer accessories

 

To use library study spaces, you must use the SeatEd app for NHS Test & Protect purposes.  Please refer to the key information at www.ed.ac.uk/is/study-space 

We are continuing our services for library users who prefer to work remotely or are unable to come onto campus, including:

  • Digital library resources including over 2 million e-books
  • Scan & Deliver service
