Covid 19 update – Loan dates extended – Returning books

Good news! We have renewed all loan items until 5th October so you still don’t need to worry about returning library items while the University Campus is closed.

However, if you are leaving Aberdeen and need to return items and it is convenient and safe for you to do so, there are two methods that can be used.

  1. Two drop-off points have been set up at the RGU student residences at Crathie and Woolmanhill. Please see our previous blogpost for more details of how this works. Any items returned to the residences will be kept there until the Library reopens so they will not be discharged from your account until then.

We are unable to provide a drop-off point on the Garthdee campus but Crathie Student Village at 515-519 Holburn Street is quite nearby. Click on the link for a Google map with directions from the Library to the residence.

  1. Items can also be returned by post as mail services are still running to the Garthdee campus. The Library team check for mail on a weekly basis so these items will be discharged from your Library account. Packages should be addressed to University Library, Sir Ian Wood Building, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, AB10 7GJ. We recommend that you ask for a receipt of postage and retain it until you receive an email receipt of return. Please note that we cannot reimburse postage costs.

Don’t forget that, although the physical library may be closed, staff are still available to answer your enquiries and to help with referencing, research skills or RefWorks- just email us at library@rgu.ac.uk

All of the Library online resources continue to be available as normal. You can access millions of resources via LibrarySearch or the databases that the Library subscribes to.
