What’s happening with the Library refurbishment #edincampuslib

Update on the HWU Edinburgh Campus Library refurbishment project.   

Phases 5 – Floor 2 and the East Stairs
We are now in the final phase of the Library refurbishment project which is mainly work on Floor 2 of the Library building.  It has involved demolition and building work and the installation of new windows and floors.  There are a variety of study rooms and study areas being constructed and new shelving for the book stock.
The completion date for this phase of the refurbishment is the beginning of September.

Remedial work
There is also some remedial taking place to work on other floors that have been refurbished.  During July and August, ceiling tiles will be removed on Floor 1 to replace vents and ducts for fire safety purposes.  This will not involve any closure of student study space on Floor 1 although sections may be out of use for short periods of time.
Similar remedial work will take place on the Ground Floor during August and September and the area will be out of use during this time.
A book fetching service  will be operating to retrieve books from the Ground Floor during this time – please ask at the Library Service Desk.

Flooding damage
After the flooding last week on campus, there was some damage to the floors on the Ground Floor.  Work is underway to dry out the area and replace carpets so the area is not accessible at the moment.  Please ask at the Service Desk for the book fetching service.

 

ID cards for access through the entry gates to the Library  have been activated for current students as they have come into the Library building.

Student lockers are available in the Library – details at the Service Desk and these will be issued via the Library Management System in the same way as books.

The Library is currently open 9:00 – 5:00 Monday to Friday

Any questions or for more information, ask at the Service Desk at the Edinburgh campus library or contact us by email or phone
