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.
January 2022: Special Collections & Archives will be open Monday-Friday (excluding public holidays) to UCC staff and students, and members of the public. Individual Reading Room opening hours are as follows:
31 January – 13 May 2022: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 11:00-16:30 and Wednesday: 11:00-19:15. Check website for individual room openings.
In addition we continue offering:
Every effort will be made to fulfil scan & deliver / reprographic types of requests, but this may not always be possible due to availability, copyright restrictions, size and condition of materials. Due to the time-consuming nature of fulfilling requests across multiple microfilm reels rather than journal articles/book chapters there is a limit of 5 items in a week.
If you have any queries relating to our collections please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is monitored regularly.
