Library opening hours
The Library operates a number of sites with extensive opening hours throughout the year.
Important information for Library users
Due to the current COVID restrictions and Scottish Government guidelines we ask that Library and study centres only be used for critical needs. The strong advice is that students should stay at home.
Please note that when you need to use a study space as a critical need, you must book one at least one day in advance.
Face coverings are mandatory. Visitors who do not comply with Scottish Government and University of Edinburgh face covering and distancing guidelines will be asked to leave.
Browsing access and book borrowing of the library collections is suspended. We have launched a scan and deliver service for staff and students at the University of Edinburgh that you can use to request scans of printed materials held by the Library. For further details see the Scan and Deliver pages.
Please see Library Services Update 2020-2021 for current service updates.
Please co-operate with library and security staff in clearing the buildings promptly at closing times.
