Did you know…? – Tours of The Sir Duncan Rice Library

Did you know that we will be running open tours of The Sir Duncan Rice Library over the next week? These will be for all students, new and old. This is to make sure that as many people as possible get the chance to learn about the Library.

Library tours

From Monday the 16th of September until Friday the 20th of September, come and meet staff on the ground floor of the library at 10am or 2pm. There is no need to book a place and each tour group will contain a maximum of ten people.

There will be more than one tour taking place at a time and they will last approximately 30 minutes. The tours by our friendly staff will introduce you to not only the beautiful building, but also the services and resources available from the library. We will also tell you:

  • How materials are organised in the building
  • How to begin borrowing the library books on your reading lists
  • How library staff can help you during your time at The University of Aberdeen

Please note that there will be no tours taking place at the weekends, but staff working then will still be happy to answer any questions you may have about the Library Service.

Please speak with staff in the Taylor and Medical Libraries for help in finding your way round their collections and spaces.

We look forward to showing you around, and also take this opportunity to wish you all good luck with the year ahead. ​​

Staff here have been very busy recording a short introduction to the Taylor Library in preparation for the new academic year. So… if you are a prospective student, a new student, a visitor, or perhaps someone who wants to conjure up happy memories, you may want to take a look at our PowToon video and slideshow, or even sit back and listen to Ross’s dulcet tones.

Learn more about the Taylor Library and European Documentation Centre on our website.

LSC&M would like to hear from new users (students and staff) who have recently joined the University and have just gone through their first month or so with us. There’s a lot to take in and we’d like your feedback on induction and your first few weeks settling in to using our libraries, services and facilities. There’s a short questionnaire on induction at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/feedback/.

We’d be delighted to hear your views so that we can improve induction experience for others in the future. You could also win a £50 book token! And there’s an opportunity to join a focus group over the next year to give us your continuing feedback.

Many thanks.
