Information for Alumni


Alumni of DCU may take out annual membership of the Library. There are two types of membership: Access only or Access and Borrowing.

Access only provides access to the Library's collections, use of the Information desk service and our pre-paid photocopying and printing service. The membership is for three years and there is no fee for Access.

Access and Borrowing costs €38 for 6 months and €76 for 12 months. Under this scheme members can also borrow up to 14 items from the Library's main-lending collection.

Please note:

  • Alumni membership can be used for both our libraries; O'Reilly Library, DCU Glasnevin Campus and Cregan Library, DCU St. Patrick's Campus
  • Alumni membership of the library is for personal private research only, not for commercial or professional purposes
  • Alumni members may not borrow from the Short Loan Collections on the ground floor
  • Due to licensing agreement regulations, access is only available to selected electronic resources while on-campus
  • off-campus access to electronic resources is not available to Alumni members
