Bring your books back!

Bring it back



Now that Autumn graduations have begun, we urge all graduates to return library material currently on loan.

 Note: Fines will not be charged for loans returned late, though patrons will be responsible for paying the replacement cost of any lost library item.

Please contact to report a missing library book on your account


To return loans, we have several options available:

Self Service Machines

Simply return books at the Self Service Machines found in all three library sites. Ask staff on duty for help if required. Always get a receipt as confirmation of the return.

Out-of-hours Return Facility

When the library is closed, you can return loans to our Return Facility located in O’Reilly Library. This facility can receive material from any DCU Library quickly and conveniently when the library buildings are closed

O’Reilly Library, Glasnevin Campus

You'll find the Return Facility on the outside wall of O'Reilly Library, to the left of the revolving door.

Issue Desk

Returns can be made on site to library staff at the Issue Desk during opening hours in all our sites.

Return by Post

Not able to make it to campus in time to return your books?  Please return any loan(s) via registered post to its home library.

Note: Patrons are deemed responsible for library items until received back by library staff and removed from the patrons account:
