Library Induction Pathways
How can you help new and returning students get started with finding, using and citing academic sources? Tell them about the range of help available from the Library!
We offer 'Getting started with using the Library' sessions at the start of trimester, aimed at new students, but open to all.
This is just one part of the support available from Information Services. We offer a variety of training and support for you and your new students throughout the year, including on-demand subject-specific sessions, research support and reference management.
All upcoming Library training sessions are listed on the Training and Events Calendar.
Getting started with using the Library
The university library is a vital resource to support students with their studies. If they have not studied at a university before or did a different degree elsewhere then they may not know what to expect from Edinburgh Napier University Library.
This workshop will help students gain a better understanding of how the library can support them, giving them the opportunity to meet Library staff and ask questions of us, and become more familiar with our spaces and services.
Welcome to the Physical Library - In person tours
We will have Library tours in each of our campus libraries, Merchiston, Craiglockhart and Sighthill.
In these tours we will take you around your campus library and tell you about:
- How to connect to Eduroam and use the University App.
- How to use the machines in the libraries like our printer/scanners, self-service checkouts and laptop loan safes.
- How to search for and find books.
- Our group study rooms and how to book them, collaborative desks, and relaxation areas.
