Unfortunately we’ve discovered a structural problem with the area where we store the majority of our reference-only material, and some of our lending material. This includes stock from all of our collections, but especially from the Reference, Edinburgh and Scottish, and Music Collections.
We’ve had to close this area off while checks are carried out.
You can still get access to most of the material which is on the public floors of the library.
We cannot yet give a timescale for when access can be restored, but it is likely to be several months. We will keep you updated as work progresses.
Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this will cause.
