Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the LRC

Just a reminder to all users that the LRC Open Access area will be fully available over the Christmas and New Year holidays, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  However, we do advise to ring the University on 0131 474 0000 just to check that the building is accessible before travelling.

The LRC will operate as normal up to and including Wednesday 21st December.  On Thursday 22nd December we will be staffed until 19:00 (7pm) and on Friday 23rd until 17:00 (5pm).  We will resume normal staffed hours on Thursday 5th January 2012.

Please remember that off-campus access to all electronic resources is available through the Remote Desktop service. Check the Library Services website for details.

And finally, please remember to renew your loans! If you renew 21-day loans now they will be issued until January; 7-day loans can be renewed into January from Saturday 17th December provided they are not required by other readers.

Best wishes to all for the festive season.
