We are delighted to introduce a new service to help you find your way around the library and improve your library skills. Our new ‘Did you know…? A collection of helpful library hints’ blog series will be launched next week (14th of January). We will aim to deliver to you useful tips on:
- Navigating your way around the library
- Searching for information
- Placing holds on items
- Our opening times
- Accessing resources off-campus
and much more!
We hope you will find this service useful.
As of Monday 11 June there will be work taking place in Silent Study Room 124
(Floor 1) of The Sir Duncan Rice Library as we re-purpose the space, to make it better fit your needs. There will be some disruption as this work takes place, and for that we apologise in advance. We will do all we can to keep any inconvenience to a minimum, but the summer months are the only time when such work can take place. The exact timing of this work is still to be confirmed but we will put out further information via our social media once we have firm dates.
In the meantime, if you need a silent space to study why not use the silent study rooms in the south west 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.

The latest issue of our ezine is packed full of interesting features.
Read more about iAberdeen – the University app for smartphones where you can go to search Primo and access your library account to view and renew loans. There is news of a new initiative that gives students an opportunity to suggest books for purchase. Read the feature on the Gale Reference Library which now gives access to 600 online publications across 18 subject areas, including Art, Education, Environment, History, Law, Literature, Religion, Science and Technology. Then there are accounts from researchers about their work based on LSC&M resources.
