We are pleased to announce that the opening hours for the Archives & Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Building have been extended for the remainder of September. As you probably know, we had been opening on Monday and Friday mornings since 20th July. From Friday 11th September, we will also be open in the afternoon on those days. Please do note, though, that the room will be closed for lunch between 12.30-13.30. Remember that it is necessary to request your material in advance. If you wish to consult books they can be requested online through the library catalogue. If you want to consult an archival collection, please email the archivists at libarchives@nuigalway.ie with details of what you need. Staff will get back to you about your request and you can then nominate a day/time for consultation. Please be sure to read the instructions for using the Reading Room during the current restrictions at http://library.nuigalway.ie/collections/specialcollections/ascrr/ 

 To recap on our opening hours: Monday and Friday only each week until the end of September, 10.00-12.30 and 13.30-16.00. Depending on  overall library opening policy, we will be reviewing these hours for October. In the meantime, please be assured that we are all working from home when not in the reading room and happy to deal with your queries at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie and libarchives@nuigalway.ie.
