Update from our Director of Library Services, Colette McKenna regarding Library Services During COVID Level 5 - Here
Books that are in high demand are held in the High Demand Books Room, on the ground (Q) floor. Self-issue & return within the room. You cannot take the book out of the library, but you can take it to any of the study areas within the library for up to 4 hours.
Use the Library Catalogue to find books and eBooks. Note:
