Freeman Library Books

The Freeman Library is the library of the Geography Department in Trinity College and is named after the late Professor Walter Freeman, the first Head of Department. Professor Freeman died in 1988 and bequeathed his personal geographical library to the Department.

The Library houses a collection of books, journals and maps, as well as past dissertations and theses undertaken by Geography students.

Students may borrow from the open shelves and also consult books in the Reserve collection, many of which are recommended core texts relating to the current undergraduate modules.

The Freeman provides a quiet working space for individual and group study.

The library is located on the ground floor in the Museum Building.

Membership of the library is open to students reading geography.

Opening Hours

The Freeman Library is currently open from 10.00 to 18.00 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday until December 17th 2021.


All enquiries concerning the use of the Freeman Library should be addressed to the Geography Office.
