Friday 17 August 4.00 pm Law Library closes in David Hume Tower
Monday 20 August 9.00 am Law Library reopens in Old College
While the move is ongoing there will inevitably be some disruption to services, and parts of the collection may be temporarily unavailable. Edinburgh University Law Library apologises in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Out of order 😦
Unfortunately the water fountain in Taylor Library is temporarily out of order.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will let you know as soon as it is up and running again.
The nearest alternative is in the vending machine area of Taylor A block.
Taylor library will be closing at 5pm this evening due to adverse weather conditions affecting staff travelling from outwith the city. The Sir Duncan Rice Library and the Medical Library will close at their usual Friday times of 10pm and 8pm respectively.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
IT Services have analysed usage of MFDs in Taylor Library (and across campus) and have made a some of changes as a result of their findings. Now, the four MFDs opposite the issue desk are all black and white machines as they are by far the most heavily used. If you require colour printing, the MFD in the PC classroom on floor 2 provides this option. It has been replaced with a larger model in order to better cope with the level of use. Just make sure to select the colour printer when sending your job.
With exam time upon us the library is naturally very busy. We strive to maintain as effective a study environment as possible in Taylor so if you have any issues please speak to a member of staff at the issue desk. We also provide a comments and suggestions box, which is located beside the MFDs, opposite the issue desk. When using this facility please provide your name and email address so that we can respond as effectively as possible.
Happy studying and good luck!
A selection of what’s available
The Taylor Library book-sale is currently on and will continue until Friday 6th October. There’s still plenty of interesting titles available so if you haven’t had a look yet, make sure you do before next Friday!
With the first classes of term just around the corner, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind users of the food and drink policy.
Food is permitted in certain areas of Taylor Library, provided it is not hot, overly fragrant or noisy. So for example sandwiches, salads and last night’s pizza are fine. Soup, curry, crisps and popping candy are not. Drinks (excluding alcohol) are permitted under the condition that hot drinks be covered with a fixed lid. In addition, while drinks are permitted throughout the library under the aforementioned conditions…
food is NOT allowed in:
- the PC classroom, or at any PC
- project rooms 1 and 2
- the silent areas in D block
Just ask a member of staff if you are unsure of anything. It is our aim to provide a harmonious study environment for all library users at all times. Please help us to do so.
