Library Services for Semester 2

library books


Due to the recent COVID-19 restrictions announced by DCU, the library buildings will be closed from Tuesday 12 January until Monday 8 March 2021 and services will be restricted.

Book A Seat

Update 24th February 2021

DCU Library is working towards a phased opening up of study spaces for those who need access. 

Due to the continued high transmission rate of the COVID virus, and the Government direction that we currently remain at level 5 until a review in early April, the Library must ensure any use of study spaces is safe and that we carefully manage access. 

We hope to make seats available for booking on Wednesday 3rd March with an opening date of Monday 8th March 2021

DCU has consistently put the health of its students and staff first and we will adhere to any conditions associated with making study spaces available and will keep this under continual review. 

We remain under Level 5 restrictions and would urge students to book a study space and come onto campus only if it is absolutely necessary.

Please watch our social media for updates about opening times and dates, and the procedures to follow when coming into a library building.
