Finding a book

Use the Catalogue to search for books

When you search note the following:

  • Location: Is the book in Limerick or Thurles? In some cases we have the same book in both campuses so make sure to check
  • Shelfmark: This is the Dewey number and three letters to help you find the book on the shelf
  • Status: Is the book Available or on loan? Remember if a book is on loan, you can reserve it using your library account


Four Hour Loan Collection

Books that are in high demand are located in the 4 Hour Loan Collection which is behind the library desk. Ask a staff member for the book you want.

You can borrow two 4 hour loan books at a time.
