Update from Librarian and College Archivist to students and staff

13 May 2020

Dear Students and Staff

I enclose some important updates on our Library services to support students and staff.

Following students' exams and assessments you will want to return your books, so please see below details on book renewals and returns:

Book renewal

  • All books on loan have been automatically renewed to 11th September 2020.  All fees are waived during this period.

Book Returns

  • For all students

Starting from today Wednesday, May 13th, the Library van will be parked at the Lincoln Place entrance from 12pm -2pm to accept book returns on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

  • For final year students only who cannot physically make it on campus

We have organised a free scheme with An Post to enable you to post your books back to the Library from anywhere in Ireland via your local post office. This service is free of charge. You can place a request here.

For any further queries on book renewals and book returns, please email:

Furthermore, for our researchers:

E-books for Researchers

  • Following our call out for e-books to support researchers working remotely, to date we have purchased an additional 265 e-books and they are all accessible through Stella. Please contact your Subject Librarian for further details.

I hope the above Library services will be of some assistance.

Best regards,

Helen Shenton
Librarian and College Archivist
