Theses Digitisation Project 2016

Jane Ohlmeyer's PhD thesis

Jane Ohlmeyer’s classic PhD thesis on Randal MacDonnell. Click to read!

We are delighted to announce that the Library is embarking on a large digitisation project of PhD theses (selected from date range 2000-2016) and will be uploading more than 2,000 as open access e-theses to TARA as 2016 progresses. You can see the ones already added in Stella.

Check if your thesis has been selected for scanning in 2016.

If your thesis is on the list and you require some restrictions on access to the electronic copy then please get in touch to discuss the options.

If you are not on the 2016 scan list but would like to contribute a PDF copy of your thesis, we would love to hear from you!

Library Video Guides

Are you a little unsure about how to find a book on the shelf in the Library? We have a short video entitled “How to Locate Books in Trinity College Library Dublin” which you might find helpful. Would you like to see a demonstration of our FastLane Self-Service System? Then check out our videos on borrowing, renewing and returning.

Our videos are available from the Library’s video guides page,  and on the TCD channel on YouTube.

Don’t forget assistance is available too from your Subject Librarian, the Duty Librarian, and the counter staff. We look forward to meeting you.
