CHANGES AHEAD for IT TALLAGHT LIBRARY !


We are currently implementing a new library system and there may be some disruption to current services during this transition phase.

From Monday 17th July 2017 we will begin the next phase of the changeover of the library system.

This will mean that some of the online facilities you are familiar with may not be available for a couple of days such as renewing books online or placing requests.

Please note the Find IT search will remain available throughout the transition.

IMPORTANT!
For those of you who use the “Reading History” option, we recommend you make a copy for your records of your reading history from our current system. They will not be transferred over to the new system.

We ask for your patience during this transition phase.

For further assistance, please contact us at library.it-tallaght.ie or 4042203 or call in to the library [open 09:15 – 17:00] and we will be happy to assist.

Library Find IT search has changed


We have made some changes to the Find IT search.


On the new search results page, when you search for print and online materials, you will notice that there are more options on the left hand column to refine your search, including Publisher, Publication, Geography, and the database the result is coming from (for example, ScienceDirect, Sage, Academic OneFile).

Check out the following short video clip to figure out Find IT in 5 minutes.




The library hopes that this change improves the library service and makes it easier for you to locate the right materials for your research.

As always the library staff are available to answer any queries that you may have about these changes.
