The University Library

The Main Library is the largest of the University’s libraries and houses a café, which is open to the public. It can be found on North Street. 

During the current Covid-19 restrictions, the Library space and collections are open only to current staff and students at the University of St Andrews. 

Alumni of the University have access to online resources and databases. Access information can be found on the Alumni access webpage.  

The Special Collections division of the University Library has a strong focus on theology, classics and history, as well as English and Scottish literature. Although it is not possible to view material from these collections at the moment, items continue to be scanned and made available online.

More information about the Main Library and the Special Collections division can be found on the Library website.
