Details of new additions to the collections of both Luke Wadding Library and College Street Library for the month of March are now available.


Please visit ‘New Acquisitions March 2013‘ to browse our library circular highlighting a selection of new stock for both the Luke Wadding and College Street Libraries.

To view this updated list in full, please see Latest Additions & Special Collections, accessible through OPAC, our library catalogue.

If you think that there are any books that would benefit our collections, don’t be shy, get in touch!! We would be delighted to hear any suggestions. Mail us with details at libinfo@wit.ie

Service Disruption

There may be some off campus access issues between 00.00 AM and 10.00 AM Saturday 30th March. This is due to upgrades on the content management system and unfortunately is outside of WIT Libraries’ control. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Any Books You Don’t Need?

The 7th March is World Book Day. We are hoping to send a shipment of books to Africa via MacTrans.
We would welcome any third-level books from WIT staff and students that are less than 10 years old and in good condition. The circulation desks in both the Cork Road and the College Street campus libraries will be happy to take them from you.
Book Aid is part of the Meitheal project.

Information Desk

From next Monday 14th January our Library Information Desk will re-open for the new Semester.  We have amended our opening hours to reflect increased demand from Library users.  Our opening hours will now be as follows:

Monday – Friday: 10am – 1pm
2pm – 4pm

Saturday:  10am – 1pm

You can also contact us at libinfo@wit.ie or 051 302840 where the Library Information Service team are waiting to deal with your query.
