From Monday 14th November 2011 entry to the Library Reading Room, during all hours of opening, will require you to activate the access control system via your University ID Card. This measure is being implemented on foot of student feedback so as to ensure that the space is retained for NUIG students only.
In order to have your University ID Card coded for access you must:
Send an e-mail to: email@example.com
Provide the following details:
- Your Name
- Your ID Number
- Indicate if you are, or are not, already on the access control system.
(You will know you are on the access control system if there is another access controlled door which you use regularly, in which case the door to the Library Reading Room just needs to be added to your account. If you are not on the access control system a new account will be generated for you.)
Please Note – Post 13th November you will not be able to enter the Library Reading Room unless your University ID Card has been coded to allow you access.

For Culture Night 2011, the James Hardiman Library at NUI Galway will be opening up and exploring their unique literary, theatre and landed estates archives.
To mark the first involvement of NUI Galway Archives and Special Collections in Culture Night we are delighted to put on a programme of events that will share these wonderful archival collections.
At 7pm Special Collections Librarians Marie Boran and Brigid Clesham will talk about their new project, the Irish Landed Estates Database, an incredible resource for those interested in tracing their family history or looking at the history of the landed estates of Ireland.
At 8pm, Fergus Fahey, Institutional Repository and Digitisation Librarian, will discuss the personal archive of writer John McGahern. Having catalogued the McGahern Archive, Fahy will deliver a detailed and insightful overview of this wonderful collection of hand-written novels, drafts, stories and correspondence, created over a lifetime’s work by one of Ireland’s most celebrated and intriguing writers.
The evening will be topped off at 9pm by screenings from the award-winning DruidSynge series. Described by The Irish Times, as “one of the greatest achievements in the history of Irish Theatre”, Galway’s Druid Theatre undertook the mammoth task of staging all works of playwright J.M. Synge. Here, you can enjoy two of these works, Riders to the Sea and The Shadow of the Glen.
All events are taking place in the Patrick Fottrell Theatre, Arts Millennium Building, NUI Galway, next to the James Hardiman Library. A free shuttle bus service will be available on the night to bring guests to and from Culture Night venues.
