Library Introductions for New Undergraduate Students- Edinburgh Campus

All new undergraduate students receive a timetabled introduction to help you get started using the Edinburgh Campus Library.  The sessions will address the FAQs of new students.  Your lecturer will tell you when to attend, if you can’t attend your scheduled session feel free to join another group or attend the open sessions below:

  • Monday 23 September 14.15
  • Tuesday 24 September 14.15

Unless otherwise stated the introductions will take place in the Anderson Room on level 3 of the Edinburgh Campus Library.

More information on Library introductions is available on the Information Services website.  Also take a look at our Power Hours.

Improvements to library loans

Information Services are happy to advise that loans of  ‘Standard’ books will be available for sixteen weeks from the date of issue: this is an increase on the previous system, negates the need for fixed return dates during the academic year, and may result in fewer people being liable to pay fines.  Remember – you need never pay a fine if you return your books on time.

The new arrangement starts on 1 July, as does a change to periodical borrowing.  Now that many of the periodicals are available online, the Information Services Committee has approved a proposal that all paper-based periodicals should be reference only.  Scanning facilities are available in the library to enable copies of paper-only articles to be made.
Should these new arrangements pose any difficulties for you, please contact the library service desk 0131 451 3577 servicedesk@hw.ac.uk
