Exam Season Support From UofG Library

Exam Season Support from the Library & IT Services – We’re Still Here for You.

We know this is a difficult time for our students, especially with exam time approaching, but we’re still here to help. The Scottish Government advice is still to stay at home if at all possible, but there are lots of online resources available to help you revise from the safety of home.

  • Exam papers online – you can access past exam papers online, by logging in to MyGlasgow 
  • Electronic Resources - use your GUID to access our electronic collections. We offer access to over 80,000 e-journals and more than 1 million e-books, and we’re adding new titles all the time. 
  • Glasgow Anywhere is full of information to support you studying and revising both remotely and on campus, and there is a section on Library Remote, where you can find out more about the services and support available to you, whilst off campus. 
  • Ask us a question - you can contact us through UofG Helpdesk if you have a question, but it’s best to search the ‘Get Answers’ section first, where most of the information you need is available instantly. Look for the exam enquiries section, where you can ask for help relating to specific exam issues, 
Using our Library Building Safely

If you do need to visit the Library, we are currently open between 10am-8pm on Mondays, and 8am-8pm from Tuesday to Sunday.

Things look and feel a little different. We’ve made changes, following guidelines from the Scottish Government, to keep students and colleagues as safe as possible:

  • No gathering in groups, even with your flatmates or others in your bubble. You must keep a two metre distance from everyone else at all times in the Library.
  • Only sit in designated study spaces marked with green stickers, and eat any food at your desk. Anyone who repeatedly gathers in a group will be asked to leave the Library.
  • No access to bookshelves or browsing. We are unfortunately unable to allow access to print book stock. You may make one request through UofG Helpdesk, for a very limited number of print books, using the Essential Loans Service. Please only use this service if it is absolutely essential - we are trying to keep our staff as safe as possible by limiting the time they spend in the building.
  • Face coverings are compulsory, unless you are exempt. Please help us to keep everyone as safe as possible. If you can’t wear a face covering you also have the option of booking one of the individual study spaces available across campus, using the UofG Life app 
  • Reduced building capacity and enhanced social distancing. We have reduced the number of study spaces to ensure space for social distancing. Check the UofGLife app  for space availability, before visiting us.  Only use study spaces with a green sticker and keep a minimum of two metres distance from others, at all times. 
  • Please return all books to the book drop outside the Library

We’ll let you know as soon things change, so please check the Library Updates page and follow us on social @UofGLibrary for the latest information.

Thank you all so much for helping us to keep the Library safe!
