New Entrance/Exit to James Hardiman Library - Opening Thursday 17th October

    From Thursday 17th October the entrance/exit to the James Hardiman Library is via the main entrance to the adjacent Hardiman Building.   Please note that for the moment the Access Control Gates will not be operational.  The gates will simply be left in the open position and you can walk in and out of the Library through the lanes without any need to swipe your ID Card.   However within the next week or two we will be finalising arrangements in preparation for the system going live, and at that time you will need your ID Card with you on each visit as you will be required to swipe in on entering the library and swipe out on exiting.  This will ensure that only bona fide University students/staff and authorised visitors will be able to gain access to the Library.
