Have a question about finding information or referencing? Drop in and see us in IT Lab 337.

As you know the library is running a programme of classes throughout the semester in IT Lab 337 in the Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre and these classes are running Monday to Friday in either the morning or the afternoon.

But sometimes you have a question not covered by these classes, need a quick answer, or would like to speak to someone one to one.

Therefore when the classes are not being run IT Lab 337 is open for everyone to use / drop in to and a member of library staff will be available to answer any questions you have about searching for information.

This means that if the classes are running 09.00-13.00 then the drop-in is running later that day at 13.00-17.00 and if the classes are running 13.00-17.00 then the drop-in is running earlier that day at 09.00-13.00.

Next week the drop in sessions are:

  • Monday 8th December 09.00-13.00
  • Tuesday 9th December 13.00-17.00
  • Wednesday 10th December 09.00-13.00
  • Thursday 11th December 13.00-17.00
  • Friday 12th December 09.00-13.00

And of course they continue after that as well. We look forward to seeing you there.

24 hour library opening, 5th January to 23rd January

Following the successful trials last year the library is pleased to announce that we will be running 24 hour opening during January and the library will be open from:

  • 08.00 on Monday the 5th January until 20.00 on Friday 23rd January.

Security staff will be on duty from 22.30 until 08.00 and the self service units and returns machine will be available as usual. If you have any questions during these times, please email library@rgu.ac.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Remember that there will be no retail outlets available outwith their normal opening hours and that First will be running their normal bus services so please make plans accordingly.

The usual rules about eating and drinking in the library will apply so please move to the amphitheatre area near the entrance on Level 3 if you need a ‘snack break’. And we are happy to report that tea and coffee will be available in the amphitheatre from 11pm onwards.

We hope you will find these extra opening hours useful and look forward to hearing your feedback during and at the end of this period.

Please see this blog post for more information about the library’s hours during the holiday period.
