The TCD library is the largest library in Ireland, built up since the end of the sixteenth century. Since 1801 the Library has had the right to claim all British and Irish publications under the terms of successive Copyright Acts. The other four Copyright libraries with this entitlement are: the British Library; the National Library of Scotland; the University of Oxford; the University of Cambridge.
The ISE has a specialist library at its Belfast campus for doctoral students and students on the M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation. Belfast-based students also have access to the library at Queen's University Belfast.
