The Library provides information, reference and lending services to Institute students, members and staff. The Library has a range of services to assist in meeting your information needs. If it is not possible to come to the library in person you may request material by letter, fax, phone, or by e-mail. The Library staff can offer help and guidance where appropriate.

A postal service is available for our distance education students. Those who live in or near Dublin should, where possible, visit the Library in person as it provides an opportunity to browse and select from a wide range of books and journals.

Requests to the library for photocopies must be submitted on a signed photocopy request form, to comply with copyright legislation. Please click here to download photocopy request form.
