Out of Hours Chat Service


We are pleased to announce the launch of a new chat service which will operate when the library is closed. Partner librarians from universities overseas will now be available ‘out of hours’ to chat online and answer your queries.

So, whether you’re a distance learning student based in a different time zone or a night owl who likes to stay up late, you can simply click on the Contact Us link on the library web pages to chat online with a librarian when it suits you best.

During normal opening hours RGU library staff will still be here to help as usual – you can contact us at, phone 01224 263450 or we look forward to seeing you at our regular classes and drop-in sessions

We hope you’ll find this this new service useful and would welcome your feedback.
