A new initiative has launched in Scotland to encourage people to respect the space of others when they're out and about.
The Distance Aware scheme offers everyone who would feel more comfortable when they have more room, the chance to wear an easily recognisable symbol to show others they need space and care. the polite prompt is designed to support those who are worried about being in public places, for whatever reason, and help them feel more confident when going about their daily life.
Free lanyards and badges featuring the Distance Aware shield are available from the Shetland Library as well as from either of our UHI Shetland libraries.
We can all play our part as we adapt to living with COVID-19. Find out more at gov.scot/distanceaware.

Library Search is the library's search engine. It provides a 'Google-like' way to find many of UHI Libraries' print and online resources at the same time. The process of finding information from both the physical and online collections has become so much simpler.
With just one search you can find print books, ebooks, newspaper articles, ejournal articles, conference proceedings and more. The results are listed in order of relevance to your search and you can filter and focus your search by publication format, date, location, language etc.
To ensure you can see all the titles of the articles in your search please login to Library Search before you start your search.
