Postgrads! Did You Know...

...that along with staff, all postgraduate students of the College are entitled to three InterLibrary Loans (ILLs) per year free of charge?

So if there's a book or journal article that we don't have in stock and you can't access online, why not order it as an ILL?

Just fill out our form, hand it in at the Issue Desk and hey presto, we'll order it for you from Trinity Library, British Library or wherever it can be found!

See the ILLs section of our website for more details and a link to our ILL form...

Save Time with ticTOCs!

Fed up trawling through databases for the same journals every time?

Why not check out ticTOCs, a brilliant new tool which keeps you up-to-date on new issues of your chosen titles.

It sends updates either by email or RSS. References link directly to full text articles (where we have a current subscription) and can also be exported directly to your Refworks account.

ticTOCs is an open access resource funded by JISC.

Brian Friel Display

Arguably our greatest living playwright, Brian Friel is 80 on Friday, January 9. To mark the occasion we are displaying a selection of his works at the entrance to the main Library.

Have a look!

Irish Times Digital Archive

The Irish Times Digital Archive is now accessed through Proquest. It allows the same access and functionality as our old version, just with a different interface.

Before performing your search simply select 'Historical Irish Times' in the 'Database' drop-down box.
The archive goes from 1859 to 12 months ago as before. You can still search the most recent year's content on www.irishtimes.com.
