Further changes

Service changes will also see an increase in seating capacity at all library sites. Access to bookshelves will also be restored. Please note that Floor 1 of The Sir Duncan Rice Library will continue to be kept free of study spaces. Study spaces will be available from floors 2 through to 7.

Our Click and Collect service will continue.

All Covid safety rules remain in place, including the wearing of face coverings at all times and a restricted number of study spaces.

If you do visit our libraries, please be aware that all the rules we put in place in 2020 still apply. These measures exist to ensure that we are keeping both you and our staff safe. Support us by taking time to read them and please observe the rules without requiring Library staff to remind you.
