Have you visited the Law Library this year?
This is a really unusual year for staff and students at Edinburgh and it can be disconcerting not knowing which facilities are open on campus, or what to expect when you get there. We want to reassure any students who are keen to visit the Law Library at Old College that there will be a warm welcome for you there. Our Helpdesk Team are working hard to make sure the library service is as safe as possible while still providing the excellent support you need to access the resources and study spaces in the building.
We’ve asked our Helpdesk Manager, Fran, to offer a few words of advice for anyone wishing to visit the library:
Library Helpdesk staff would like to welcome you back to the Library! We are here to help with guiding you to the study space that you have booked, card replacements and general enquiries. We do ask that you follow the guidelines for things that have been put in place to ensure the safety of all library users and staff. This means that you must wear a face covering (unless you have an exemption) at all times, even when you are sat in a study space. We have put a lot of cleaning material and hand sanitiser in the library, if anything is missing please let us know. There is a well marked out one way system which is there for you to follow and ensures that we all can maintain social distancing.
Fran and her team are ready to greet you during the library’s open hours, which are currently as listed below:
|Monday – Thursday||9am – 9.50pm|
|Friday||9am – 6.50pm|
|Saturday||9am – 4.50pm|
|Sunday||12noon – 4.50pm|
These hours may change from the 5th December 2020 in preparation for exams. For more information on this and other changes to the service, check the Law Library pages on the university website:
We hope that you stay safe and know that the Law Library will be ready to welcome you back whenever it is safe for you to be on campus.
