Extended opening hours at The Sir Duncan Rice Library

24 7With the exam period fast approaching, the Library Services at the University of Aberdeen is offering extended, 24/7 opening hours for students and staff.

The Sir Duncan Rice Library (TSDRL) opened at 11:00 on Sunday 17 November, and it stays open continuously until 22:00 on Friday 13 December 2019.

There will be swipe card access after 22:00 every day, so please bring your ID card with you if you want to stay longer as access will not be permitted without a valid ID card.

Please, read more information about the extended opening hours here.

While TSDRL is open for 24/7 before and during exams, the site libraries – e.g. Taylor Library and Medical Library – are open as normal. Follow the link for more details.

If you have any feedback or suggestion, please contact us at library@abdn.ac.uk.

Sir Duncan Rice Library is open 24/7 until 17 May 2019

24 7As we are getting closer to the exams, the Taylor Library is getting more and more busy. We are happy to see many of you here, and to help you with your exam preparation. Although our opening hours stay the same, this does not mean, you have to stop your studies at 10 pm.

The good news is that the Sir Duncan Rice Library has extended its opening hours, and it is now open 24/7 until 22:00 on Friday 17 May 2019.

Please, be aware that there is only swipe access in the main library after 10 pm, so you always need your ID card to enter the building. Also, as library PCs require a nightly shutdown for reboot, they will not be available for around 10 minutes at 4 am. If you are working on something important at the time, you will have the option to delay the shutdown for 2 hours.

Remember, to take regular breaks and to look after your belongings. For your safety, do not leave the library alone, always travel home with your friends in the early hours.

We wish you all the best during revision time, and good luck with your exams.
