Our Library over Summer
The exams may be over, but our campus libraries are still open and offering a full range of services. That means that you still have access to laptop loans, printing, study space, and group study rooms. Also, Click and Collect and Inter Library Loans services are still operational. During staffed hours you can still contact us or come to the helpdesk for assistance.
Although you have finished your studies for the summer the library may still have something to offer:
Merchiston library has a wide selection of novels, poetry and photography books.
Craiglockhart Library has French, German and Spanish textbooks if you are interested in learning another language.
Sighthill library has books about birds, animals and plants for nature lovers.
Use Librarysearch to check out what is available!
You can also still access our relaxation spaces to take some time out or have some quiet time.
Don’t forget our online services where you are able to access electronic books and journals throughout the summer break. Also, Box of Broadcasts has lots of summer themed programmes to enjoy:
Countryfile Summer Diaries
Roads Less Travelled
Britain’s Best Walks with Julia Bradbury
Iain Robertson Rambles
All Aboard! The Canal Trip
Nature’s Calendar (Summer)
Travel Man (48 hours in….)
The Great British Seaside Holiday-Timeshift
And when the weather permits, why not visit the extensive grounds around Craiglockhart campus where you can take a walk or relax and take in the fantastic views of Edinburgh.
We hope you decide to use the library this summer, but if you don’t have a great summer and we will see you again in September!
