Our Library over Summer

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

Secret Scotland

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!

Now that it’s summer we are longing to get out and about a bit more to see what the UK has to offer, but the cost of staycations has rocketed and many of our home attractions seem as out-of-reach as foreign parts. If you feel you need an escape from the city and your studies, you could try a virtual escape using Box of Broadcasts, our online off-air service. BoB is your passport to the best of the British countryside, seaside, lochs and mountains:

Scotland – Grand Tours of Scotland; Grand Tours of the Scottish Lochs; The Skye Trail

North of England – Britain’s Most Beautiful Landscapes (The Lake District); The Yorkshire Dales with Paul Rose; Robson Green: Walking Coast to Coast

UK walks – Britain’s Best walks with Julia Bradbury

Rivers and Canals – The Thames with Tony Robinson; The River: A Year in the Life of the Tay; The River Wye with Will Mallard; Great Canal Journeys

Find them all here: BoB
