Library opening hours
The Library operates a number of sites with extensive opening hours throughout the year.
Changes to Library services from 26 April 2021
As part of the Scottish Government’s planned route map out of lockdown, Edinburgh moved to restriction Level 3 from Monday 26th April.
All remaining libraries (with the exception of The School of Scottish Studies Archives and Library) have reopened. Barriers to print collections have been removed and self-issue book machines restarted in order to give University library users self-service access to print collections.
The Click & Collect Service is now closed as user browsing and borrowing of collections has resumed. We continue to provide access to the Scan & Deliver service.
All centrally managed study spaces have opened and full details are available on the Study Spaces website.
Please Note: when using these study spaces, you must pre-book, adhere to 2 metre physical distancing and a face covering worn at all times.
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.
