Green Campus initiative - Boole Library New Reading Rooms closing weekends to reduce energy consumption

by Martin O'Connor on 2021-10-19T12:16:00+01:00 | Comments

UCC Library continues to operate the longest opening hours of any academic library in the country, with the Boole Library open from 7:30am – 1:30am seven days a week. As part of UCC Library’s on-going commitment to UCC’s Green Campus initiative and our responsible use of energy consumption within library buildings, we have made a small change to Reading Room access over the weekends. This change is introduced as a pilot project to explore the impact on energy costs.

As of Friday 15th October, the New Reading Rooms on Q+1, Q+2 and Q+3 of the Boole Library Building close from 8pm on Friday evenings until 7:30am on Monday mornings. The areas impacted are indicated in blue on the following maps: Q+1Q+2 and Q+3.  

Over 1200 bookable study spaces will still be available for Library users. All other Library spaces such as the Creative Zone and Group Study rooms also remain available for student use. 

Access to the library’s collections is unaffected. The Library will continue to review patterns of usage of the library building and will reinstate weekend access to the new reading rooms prior to examinations period.

Brookfield Health Sciences Library is unaffected.
