Information for Academic Staff

How do I join the library as a staff member?
See User Information for staff on the Library webpages for full details.

You will be automatically registered with the Library once you are on HR Connect. Your Staff ID card is also your Library card. Please ask at any library desk if you need help.

New member of staff?

I would be very pleased to show you the resources available at Edinburgh Napier - including LibrarySearch, individual databases, and the Edinburgh Napier Research Repository. Please email me to make an appointment.

How do I request books to be purchased by the library?
When you complete a module descriptor you will be asked to fill out details about core & background readings. If you would like to request extra books for a module, wider reading or research, email me:

Please include:

  • Book details. e.g. Title, author, date of publication.
  • Approximate number of students.
  • Mode of delivery - Is the module run on campus or distance learning/overseas?
  • Core or background  - Will the book be a core item that students need to use often, or for background reading?

Involved in research?

Please see the Research pages in this guide for some background information. You will also find useful information via the library's general post-graduate research pages or staff research pages.
