The University Library

Those living in the local community are welcome to use the Main University Library. You can become a member of the Library and borrow books, or just visit to consult material. Within the Library, there is the option to study in silent areas or enjoy the bustling social spaces.

The Main Library is the largest of the University’s libraries and can be found on North Street. The Library houses a cafe and help is available from the Library Service Desk and IT Service Desk. The Special Collections division of the University Library has a strong focus on theology, classics and history, as well as English and Scottish literature. Material can be accessed easily and viewed in the Napier Reading Room within the beautifully renovated Martyrs Kirk Research Library. More information about the Main Library and the Special Collections Division can be found on the Library website.
