Inter- library loans during this period

Unfortunately, due to the International Covid-19 virus crisis, and the Government order for schools and third-level institutions to close until August 10th , it will not be possible for the Library to offer an Inter-library loan service during this time. Most of our partner Institutions in Ireland and the UK are closed for business and accordingly a decision was taken to suspend the service until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our staff, students and researchers. We ask if you do have an Inter-library loan checked out from us at the moment that you take good care of it.

Although we cannot at present offer our usual Interlibrary Loan service, we have a special Covid-19 Guide to help you with your remote study. Please click here to access our free resources available on-line to you. If you can’t find what you are looking for here, please contact us at and we will try our best to suggest alternative material for your study.
