Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library opening hours

Opening hours of the Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library, King's Buildings, Thomas Bayes Road, Edinburgh EH9 3FG

Disruption to library services Tuesday 31 May to 31 July 2022

There will be some minor disruption to library services at the Noreen & Kenneth Murray Library from Tuesday 31 May to 31 July 2022.  This is due to preparatory work in relation to the adjacent KB Nucleus Project – the major new development at the heart of the King’s Buildings Campus (find out more).


The disruption to library services Tuesday 31 May to 31 July 2022 will include:

  • relocation of the EdHelp service desk to the Ground Floor
  • suspension of card production 30 May to 06 June 
  • no uCreate service (alternative services at the Main Library)
  • EdPrint suspended on First Floor (alternative print/copy/scan facilities on other library floors)  
  • partitioning of discrete areas of the First Floor and minor noise disruption due to works

Access to print collections are not affected.

With the easing of restrictions we welcome all users into the UoE Libraries. Please note, that for some external users, the membership application process has changed. Please check up-to-date information on the Joining the Library web pages before visiting any library. 

Covid-19: Please see the University's guidance on hygiene and safety measures when on-campus. The University also promotes the Scottish Government ‘Distance Aware’ scheme and expect all library users to respect those members of our community who are either wearing a lanyard or badge, or request that others keep a distance. 

Distance Aware scheme

Full details on using library and other centrally managed study spaces are available on the Study Spaces website.
