Library books over the summer
Need your library books over trimester 3? Don't worry! You can keep them.
We will only ask you to return them if they are requested by another user. Just make sure you check your staff emails as fines and fees still apply to late returned library books.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you've got a question or speak to Library Help Desk staff.

Report a problem on LibrarySearch
So that we can improve LibrarySearch, we’ve added a one-click option to report problems with Library resources.
If you’re having a problem accessing resources using LibrarySearch, simply click on the wrench icon next to the item, add your email and any details – and the issue will be sent to us along with all the book/ebook/article/database identifying information.
Web filter – Log in on campus to access library eresources
The new web filtering service will change how Library eresources are accessed on campus.
If you use Google or bookmarks to find ejournal articles, ebooks, databases etc you will no longer automatically be recognised as belonging to Edinburgh Napier University and given access.
The easiest way to find all the resources that you have access to is to start at LibrarySearch, which is set up to provide seamless on-campus access to the vast majority of our subscribed eresources.
To see everything available in LibrarySearch, you will now need to log into LibrarySearch on campus as well as off.
• Go to LibrarySearch.
• To log in, click Not signed in > Sign in > University member.
If you prefer to use bookmarks or Google
You will need to log into the individual eresources using the UK Federation/Shibboleth/institutional login link.
This is different for each journal or database, but usually means looking for a ‘Sign in/Log in’ button and then choosing to log in via Edinburgh Napier University.
