SerialsSolutions pulls all journals held across all of our (as well as DCU and Mater Dei's) online databases and organises them into a handy A-Z so you can quickly find if a particular journal is available online, along with archive details and a direct link to it.
The database enables searching of:
- All NLI manuscripts catalogued up to the 1980s
- Irish manuscripts in other libraries from the 1940s and 1970s
- Content from over 150 journals up to 1969
It contains over 180,000 catalogue records for Irish manuscripts and articles. The records provide excellent bibliographic detail and info on how to access the item in the NLI or elsewhere. The records are fully indexed, allowing the user to search and navigate by subject also.It's still in development, so there will be changes and additions over the next few weeks. In time it will include links to all the pdf NLI manuscript collection lists (such as the Redmond Papers, Sheehy-Skeffington Collection etc.) embedded within the records.
The official launch is due in November, but why not have peek at this beta version?

If there's a journal or book (or anything else within reason...) that you need for your research but can't find on our shelves, you may ask us to request it from another library on your behalf.
To do so, simply print and fill our ILL request form, sign it and hand it in at the Library Information desk. Unfortunately forms cannot be submitted online as we require a signature. Printed forms can also be obtained in the Library.
For more information check out the ILL section of our website.
