What's different in our libraries?

2009 COVID changes image.pngOur libraries have reopened, and​ you'll find a number of changes put in place to ensure your health and wellbeing. 
See details of how to use the library at Library Services and COVID-19

You'll see: 
  • ​One way systems to enter and exit.

  • QR codes on doors to scan using the iNapier app to register your presence on campus.

  • Study spaces have a green tick and a number on each desk/space. Book the study space using Resource Booker​ and then find the number of the space you have booked.

  • Study spaces which are not in use to allow for 2 metres social distancing have a red cross on the desk, and a NOT IN USE cover on the chair.

  • Helpdesks have perspex screens and staff presence on helpdesks will be limited due to COVID-19 precautions.
    If you can, please email​ or call 0131 455 3500.

  • You can now borrow laptops for 14 days - instead of the previous seven day loan.
