Help us Keep a Journal...

We are currently carrying out a survey of our journal usage, both print and online.  
If and when you consult one of our print journals in the Library this year you'll see a yellow bookmark attached to the cover.

We ask that any time you consult a title from our journal shelves (old or new!), you do the following:
  • tick & date the bookmark in the boxes provided (see picture)
  • ...and that's it!
If you were here last year you'll remember we did something similar.  Along with online usage statistics, this helps us gauge usage rates of our various titles and tailor our collection towards YOUR needs!

So tick and date the yellow bookmarks and help us keep a journal of our journals.  Thanks!

Attention New Students!

A big Library fáilte roimh to all of our new first years and international students.

 Over the next few weeks we have Library Induction Tours available for all newly registered students, a quick way of finding out all you need to know (for now!) to get the most out of the Library.

 B.Ed.'s will be assigned a group and time so just need to turn up in their pre-appointed group.  B.A.'s and international students can sign in whatever time suits best at the Library Information Desk.

 If you're not sure where to sign in, or have a question about anything in the Library, just ask a member of Library Staff.
