Craiglockhart libraryOur campus libraries are packed with resources specific to the course you'll be studying there.

You can even study 24/7 in the comfort of the newly refurbished campus library at Merchiston.

We can also give you the information-seeking, handling and analysing skills you'll need for your course, and your subsequent career.

As an Edinburgh Napier student you will have access to:

  • Half a million books, print journals, DVDs, CDs, maps, sheet music, reports, reference materials, special collections, newspapers - everything you need for your assignment.
  • More than 9,000 full-text e-journals and magazines which you can access from any of the library's networked computers, and from off campus.
  • Access to 27,000 new e-books, which you can print and download.
  • LibrarySearch - the new 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.
  • Group study rooms  - and silent study rooms when you want some peace.


Our friendly and informed staff will help you make the most of what we have with:

  • Online and face-to-face enquiry services.
  • Subject librarian lectures, workshops, and drop-in sessions focused on your area of study.


In support of lifelong learning, we offer Library services for external members for free or for a small administration fee.

Library regulations and details of any potential charges can be found on myNapier.
