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

Special Collections holds a copy of Joyce's Ulysses with black and white illustrations by Henri Matisse, signed by both Joyce and Matisse. This copy is no. 682 of 1500 copies commissioned by George Macy, the founder of the Limited Editions. Matisse completed drawings based on six episodes from Homer’s epic poem Odyssey rather than from Joyce's Ulysses. Once Joyce realised this he stopped signing the limited edition. Therefore UCC Library's Special Collections' copy is unusual as both James Joyce and Henri Matisse have signed it.
