For all your book needs and so much more, it’s definitely best to go to your induction with Peter to learn everything the library has to offer, as there is so much that will become really useful later on in your studies; such as the online resources and eBooks.
There are all the books and journals that you should need, and even more books that you can order from Riccarton campus, for light reading there are now fictional books you can borrow too.
There are a number of computer rooms and Wi-Fi for you to use with your laptop in the library, as well as around the campus.
The Scottish Borders campus computers are all on a shared network so you can access your files from any computer on site, the library sets your user name and password for this, so if you ever forget your password ask at the library desk and they’ll help sort it out.
You also get a university email address and it’s important you check your inbox regularly as you may be contacted by lecturers and the university this way.
