DCU Library encompasses the Library’s collections, services, expertise and spaces at O’Reilly Library, DCU Glasnevin Campus and Cregan Library, DCU St Patrick’s Campus and across all DCU campuses through our digital collections. DCU is Ireland’s University of Enterprise and this ethos is reflected in our services and collections, which are resources to enable learning, teaching, research and public engagement.
The directorates within DCU Library (Research & Teaching, Collections, Systems & Administration, Public Services & Outreach, Special Collections & Archives) manage collections of immense diversity, from world-class digital services to unique historic items and extensive collections of modern Irish art.
