What has changed over Summer at the Library
This post is to update returning students on changes to the Library over the Summer
We hope you had a great summer and enjoyed the break from your studies. We wanted to update you on what has changed in our campus libraries for the new academic year.
All covid-19 restrictions have been lifted. This means you no longer need to wear a face covering in the library, but please feel free to do so if you will feel safer. There are no longer any social distancing measures. So we have removed seat covers and cross stickers from desks, meaning all study spaces are available for use. We are still providing hand sanitisers throughout the libraries.
Group study rooms are back to normal capacity, although we would recommend advance booking using Resource Booker to ensure you get the room and time slot you prefer.
We will be resuming library tours at the beginning of term.
If you are visiting Craiglockhart campus you will see that we have removed unused bookshelves to create more study spaces and a larger relaxation space.
Here’s a reminder of our continuing services:
Our self-service kiosks are available so you can borrow and return books even when helpdesks are closed.
Lapsafes are still available for laptop loans and returns during campus opening hours.
Our Click and Collect service will continue to allow you to request books which can be picked up during campus opening hours from the Click and Collect shelves.
The inter library loan service is still available if you would like to access materials which Edinburgh Napier does not stock.
Library opening hours can be viewed here.
If you have any questions, you can contact the library at any time.
We look forward to seeing you all again in September!
