You said, we did – Service improvement in Taylor Library

dav

The new academic year is already upon us, and we are getting busier every day. It is great to welcome not only the new but also, the many returning students in the library.

For those of you who were regular users of our services last year, the news that the library has got 396 new electrical sockets must come as a pleasant surprise. We know how many of you preferred using your own laptops here, and were sometimes disappointed when you failed to find free tables next to a wall socket. During the summer, this major refurbishment gave us the chance to improve our services.

Please come and visit us in Taylor Library to see what we can offer, and hopefully, enjoy a more comfortable and pleasant working environment.

IT Services is relocating the IT Service Desk Walk-in Service to the Sir Duncan Rice Library from Monday 3 September 2018. This means that the current walk-in location in the Edward Wright Building will be permanently closed to visitors after Friday 31 August.

In the Sir Duncan Rice Library, the IT Service Desk will be placed alongside the Library Information Desk, and it will provide the users help in person with IT related queries. The Desk is open from Monday to Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm.

IT Services will continue to handle email and phone inquiries as usual, and the Foresterhill Service Desk remains open in room 1:122 of the Polwarth Building. You can also log an IT query any time through MyIT portal.

Additional power sockets in Taylor Library

ShinySocketToMeGood news everyone – Taylor Library is to have over 200 additional power sockets installed over the coming weeks, meaning almost every seat where laptops are permitted will have an outlet by the time term starts in September.  There will inevitably be some disruption as the work is carried out but we will of course be open for business as usual. Apologies for any inconvenience the works
may cause.
