Library building 

Please note the Library is only open for current Heriot-Watt and Borders College staff and students. We are unable to accept external visitors at this time. 

Access to the building will be controlled according to physical distancing guidelines. Scan the QR code at the main entrance before entering the library.  This is to collect contact data during the Covid19 pandemic in compliance with Scottish Government guidance.

Occupancy is limited, with bookable study spaces.

The study spaces – seats and tables – are numbered and will be clearly marked to make it easier to find your seat.  

Face coverings must be worn at all times. 

Moving round the building will be the same as moving round the Campus – keep left whenever possible and physically distance from other students and staff.

Browsing the lending shelves will be possible from Monday 13 September 2021. The Click and Collect service will remain open at SBC Library only.
