What’s happening with the Library refurbishment #edincampuslib

The HWU Edinburgh Campus Library refurbished project is progressing well.
An overview of the project details can be found at how we are  ‘Transforming Your Library’  
We will keep you updated through these blog posts and through our social media channels.  There will be news of the exciting new developments and we will keep you updated as to which spaces and resources are available in the Library during the enabling and refurbishing works.

What is happening when?
The Ground Floor refurbishment work is completed.
The study space is available for use and has new furniture in place.  It is a silent study space and although drinks can be taken into the area, food is not allowed.
The shelving is for journals and theses and also, in the future, for some of the book collection.

The good news is that the Main Entrance of the Library is open again.
It has been refurbished with a seating area and feature wall.

The Service Desk has been replaced with a brand new Service Desk

Construction work is now underway on the other half of Floor 1 of the Library and this will provide fantastic study space for students from the end of October.
The cafe in the Library building is closed until the end of October.  There are vending machines and a water fountain available near the Service Desk.

Floor 2 and Floor 3 of the Library are open as usual.  Two of the individual study rooms are being adjusted to provide assistive technology facilities.
Journals and Theses –  currently, some journals and theses have been moved to off-site storage.  If you require access to these resources, please ask at the Service Desk.

How do I get help if needed?
Ask at the Service Desk at the Edinburgh campus library or contact us by email or phone

Study spaces are available in the Learning Commons 1 and in Learning Commons 2
