Both Boole and Brookfield BHSL Libraries have re-opened with the safety of Library users and staff as our chief guiding principle.

Update from our Director of Library Services, Colette McKenna regarding Library Services During COVID Level 5 - Here
Click & Collect is a new service from UCC Library whereby you can place online requests for print books held in the library. Submit a request here and we will have your books ready for collection.
You are welcome to browse and borrow items from the libraries lending collections, however if you are not in a position to browse you can use the Click & Collect service.
Please note , you must login with your UCC Credentials
All items which can currently be borrowed from UCC Library's general collections can be requested from Click & Collect, including items which are located in the store. You cannot request an item which is currently checked out. Items which are located in the High Demand Collection cannot be requested but you can use the Scan & Deliver service to request a chapter from High Demand items.
You can make requests up to the number of books you are allowed to borrow according to your membership category.
The Click & Collect service is available to all staff and students of University College Cork.
Every effort will be made to fulfil your request as soon as possible but delays may occur due to high demand and the necessity to quarantine returned books.
Your books will be held for 3 working days from the day after you receive your email. After that they will be returned to the shelves.
We will send you an email when your book is ready for collection. This email will detail the 3 day period in which you can visit Boole Library to collect your item(s).The Collection service will operate between 9:00 and 17:00, Monday to Friday.
Please note that your books will be available in the lobby in the library. They will be filed under your name. You can check the items out on the self-issue machine. Please bring your UCC student card with you. Social distancing will be in place.
There will be a book returns service at the entrance to the library where you can return your books. The books will then be quarantined for 72 hours.
