Library Re-opening

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 .

Inter Library Loans: Information for Other Libraries

Lending Policies

We are pleased to tell you that an inter-library loan service for electronic items only is now available. Due to the continued closure of library buildings we cannot process requests for physical items.

We supply loans and copies to all parts of the world. 

In general, library stock is lendable, except for most of the material in Special Collections. 

To make a request 

Please email 

For libraries which use the BLDSC billing system, the request code is CO/U-1 

Other libraries should note the following charges:

Article:    €9 or 1 IFLA voucher (International Federation of Library Associations)
Loan:       €18 or 2 IFLA vouchers

IFLA vouchers is the preferred payment method, but we can issue invoices and accept payment by cheque.
