UCC Library is committed to reopening both Boole and Brookfield libraries as soon as it is safe to do so: the safety of library users and staff is the chief guiding principle. Read more about our plans and schedule for re-opening our Libraries .

Over 2018 there was a year long display in the Rare Books Reading Room in Special Collections which changed on a regular basis. This online guide complemented the physical display..
The purpose of the display was to showcase the range that may be in any one collection as well as to demonstrate how collections in UCC Library's Special Collections interconnect.
For 2018 the display focused on the Hawtin Collection which is particularly rich with 19th century and early 20th century printings.
Following Government directives that higher education institutions should close, UCC physical campus is closed. If you have any queries relating to our collections please email email@example.com as this email address will be monitored regularly.
Face-to-face services at Special Collections & Archives have resumed in a limited capacity as of 20 July 2020: Monday-Friday 10-12:45. Please note that we will have reduced capacity due to social distancing measures, and access will be by appointment only. Walk-ins and same-day requests will not be possible.

We want to make your visit as enjoyable, productive and safe as possible. To do that, we’ll need to work together. We would especially ask you to follow all the public health advice, and not to come to Special Collections & Archives if you’re feeling unwell.
Keeping everyone in our buildings safe is our first priority, so there will be some changes to how you access and use our services. We apologise in advance for any delays and trust you will understand.
