Interactive Main Library maps now available

Struggling to find your way around the Main Library? Or struggling to know where to locate a book in the Main Library once you’ve found it in DiscoverEd? The new interactive Main Library maps may be just what you need.

You can access the new maps directly at https://www.librarymaps.is.ed.ac.uk/
where you can use the Find on Floor tags to locate printers, group study space, recent returns shelves, toilets, etc.

But the interactive maps are also linked to DiscoverEd, so when you search for a book or journal that is available in the Main Library and click on the Find it in Library tab, you’ll now notice a Locate link.

Clicking on this Locate link will take you into the Main Library maps with a tag showing where the book should be located on the shelves.

Interactive maps are also available for the Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library (Murray Library) at King’s Buildings.

The interactive Library maps were launched at the end of last week and some final checks are being done to look out for any amendments that are required.

If you have any feedback on the interactive Library maps then please submit by clicking on the Feedback link on the Library maps site.

I hope these will prove useful for both new and returning students,members of staff and visitors to the Library.

Please note, the Lower Ground Floor of Main Library is not yet accessible to students or staff. This area is currently being redeveloped to create new study space. This will open in semester one, 2016/17 so do look out for this.
