Welcome to the Library
We're here to help you find the resources you need at Edinburgh Napier University. If you can't find what you are looking for, try the Help Centre (includes helpsheets for databases and searching).
LibrarySearch is the search tool from the Library. One search gives you fast results for books, e-books, online journal articles and more. You can also use it to place requests, check if you have fines and renew borrowed items.
LibrarySearch is still under development, but we would appreciate your feedback about it.
Learn more about LibrarySearch on this page.
