Please note, this video was recorded during Covid lockdown - information on access to library spaces and to the Sconul Access scheme (both spaces and Sconul Access are now re-opened) still to be updated.
If you have come to the university from a traditional campus-based institution, our libraries may seem very different. Rather than one large library on six or seven floors of a central building, our study spaces and print book collections are spread throughout the region, from Shetland to Perth, Campbeltown to Elgin. Because of this, we rely on electronic library resources to a great extent and have developed an intersite loan service to enable students and staff to borrow print books from all our academic partner libraries. This service is free of charge. Your local campus library staff are there to help you negotiate the services - get to know them, whether by email, VC or in person, and your access to resources will be a breeze!

Library services are open (almost) as normal, but some COVID mitigation measures are still in place as at end February 2022, such as mask wearing, sanitising and social distancing measures.
The Library Services are provided jointly by the LIS Libraries team (part of the UHI's Executive Office) and by the Libraries of the individual Academic Partners.
