The Scottish Borders Campus is open for 66 hours each week in Semester time, giving you plenty of time to access the books, journals and other materials, and use other services.

With over 100 individual and group study places, as well as bookable Conference and Seminar Rooms with PC and projection facilities, there is plenty of space for you to study on your own, or work collaboratively. Wireless networked laptops can be borrowed to use for group work on the Ground Floor or First Floor Seminar Rooms.

There is wireless throughout the Library and Campus, and networked PCs and iMacs give access to University-licensed software, databases and journals, as well as other online resources. Networked Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) provide print, copying and scanning facilities, and a binding machine is provided for a professional finish for your essay, project or dissertation.

The Scottish Borders Campus Library is on two floors.

The Ground Floor, shown below from the entrance, includes the following main locations (from left to right):
