Announcement

Important Update 14th April: We are working on restoring access to library services. Apologies for any inconvenience caused during this systems outage, as we work to a full restoration of services over the coming days. The library website will be regularly updated as library services are fully restored, click & collect and study room bookings remain unavailable for the time being.

Students and staff are reminded that our campus building remains closed to all students and staff (except notified staff). Further updates will be provided as they become available. We thank you for your understanding at this time.

During the current restrictions, we would advise students to use the Online Library Resources as much as possible. This includes ebooks, databases, academic journals, and more. These resources are available 24/7 and from any location. Library staff is available for online support by email (library@ncirl.ie) and LibChat. Or you can contact the Library Help Centre for one to one support for assignments and research via email (libraryhelpcentre@ncirl.ie) or through online appointments available to be booked here.

For details on booking a space and all other on-campus services see our Remote Learning & Library Supports guide.
