Using the Library
Please see Library Services update 2020-2021 for current service updates.
As part of the Scottish Government’s planned route map out of lockdown, it is expected that Edinburgh will move to restriction Level 3 on Monday 26th April. From this date, we expect to be able to reopen all remaining libraries, remove barriers to print collections and restart self-issue book machines in order to give University library users self-service access to print collections.
While browsing access to Library collections is suspended, we continue to provide access to print collections through our Click & Collect and Scan & Deliver services. [add links to C&C and S&D]
In response to students’ requests about increased access to study spaces throughout the forthcoming revision and exam period, we are making the following changes:
- From 6th April, 176 study spaces will open at Murchison House, King’s Buildings
- From 19th April, 57 study spaces will open at the Fire Station, ECA
- From 26th April, all remaining centrally managed study spaces and all libraries will reopen
When using these study spaces, you must adhere to 2 metre physical distancing and a face covering worn at all times.
You must make a study space booking in advance to use a study space.
