  Using the Library

Each of our libraries has book and journals which reflect the subjects taught on that campus. You are likely to find most of the books you want in the library closest to your teaching, but you can also request books from other campuses.
For opening hours and contact details, click the Library below:
Craiglockhart | Merchiston | Sighthill
  • Bring your ID card with you when you visit the Library.
  • Undergraduates and postgraduates (i.e. Masters students) may borrow 15 items and research students 25 items.
  • To avoid getting fines, make sure you return recalled books before the due date. 
  • Check your University email account regularly to ensure you get weekly emails from the Library which list the items you have on loan and their due dates.
  • If you have fines you will not be able to borrow new items. Access to other services such as study room bookings will also be affected. 
  • You can return items to any Library, but we prefer them to be returned to the Library from which you borrowed them.
