Semester 1 2020

In line with COVID procedures DCU Library has implemented a number of new services to ensure the safety of students and staff.  These services include:

  • Click & Collect Service
    This service allows users to request items from the main lending collections for loan. Requested items will be retrieved, issued to the library user, and made available for collection. 
  • Book A Seat
    To avail of a study space, you must reserve a seat in advance and advise that you are well.  It is important to note that at this stage, there is no access to the books stacks, PC suites, or self-issue machines. 
  • Scan & Send Service
    This enables the ordering of digitised scans of library materials subject to copyright rules.

We continue to make a vast range of electronic journals books and databases available on line and can assist you in using these comprehensive resources.

These steps are being taken in line with government and university direction and are subject to change.  We will use social media channels to keep our students and colleagues up to date on any developments.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.  We know this is a challenging time and are doing all we can within public health guidelines to deliver as comprehensive service as possible both online and in our buildings.
