Accessing IT-Tallaght Library and Other Libraries


Please find below details of how to access other Irish and international research and public libraries.

For students of other colleges wishing to access IT Tallaght library:

  • If you are a student of one of the Partner institutions (see list below) you can get a Partner's card from your own library. Bring this and your student card to the library for access.
  • If you are attending any of the TU 4 Dublin institutions you can access the library using your student card.
  • If you are attending any other college you will need a letter of introduction to access the library which states the date of your visit and subject area/book you are interested in. Access is at the discretion of the librarian.
  • You also have the option to join as an external reader/borrower.

Walk In Service

The library operates a walk in service for access to it's electronic resources, where our licences permit this. To avail of this service you must:

  1. Register in advance using the online form
  2. Be in good standing with the library, if you were previously a member
  3. Book a time slot online in advance
  4. Bring ID with you on the Day

This service is available to all, but with a limit on the number of hours any one person can book in the course of a year. The log on details for each session will be different, and library staff will reset these after each session. Availability of bookable slots is limited to times of low service demand in the library, and so will vary throughout the year. If you have an urgent need for this service, please contact the library so establish whether special arrangements can be made to facilitate you.

Find out more and register online on the Walk In Service page.
