We are currently repurposing some areas within The Sir Duncan Rice Library, and while this work is carried out there will be some minimal disturbance to users of the building. Some of the work is expected to run until the end of August. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
In the meantime, if you need a silent space to study why not use the silent study rooms in the southwest corner of Floors 3, 4 and 5? These rooms were recently equipped with power and USB sockets allowing you to work from your laptop in a silent environment.
Please also note that the Taylor Library is open 09:00 – 17:00 over the summer period. Taylor Library’s silent study areas are located in block ‘D’ on levels 1 and 2.
