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.
News and Announcements
Monday 30th March 2pm-4pm Merchiston Room F11
Sarah Brear from the Copyright Licencing Agency will present a workshop introducing the work of the Copyright Licencing Agency and focus on the ways in which teaching staff and students can use Copyright materials, especially in digital format. If you scan or photocopy or print images and use them in your work then you should attend to find out how to remain within the law. Infringing copyright is very easy but can be very expensive if you're caught breaking the law. It can also be used to protect creative works that are developed within the University - so whether you use or create copyright materials, this workshop will be of interest to you.
Details of the work of the Copyright Licencing Agency along with some training information is available at Copyright Licensing
