Welcome sign and students at Sighthill campus

Welcome to Edinburgh Napier University!

We have three libraries, one at each each campus, as well as a huge variety of online resources.

Before you start, read through the Introduction to Computing and Library Services on Moodle. This aims to give you the information you need to get started with Library and IT services when you first arrive at University.

See Introducing our Libraries for more information on how to join our quick and friendly introduction sessions to the online and campus libraries.
