The Library is entirely wireless enabled. The Lower Library also has ethernet points for your laptop. If you need an ethernet cable please contact the I.T. Manager, Alastair Johnson. Information on adding the library printer to your laptop is here.
There are 6 library pcs in the Lower Library. You will need your Trinity username and password to log on to these.
You will normally be given a membership of Trinity Library before your course starts. Contact the Librarian if this is not the case (If you are not a member you will get an error message when trying to borrow using the self-issue terminal).
The Library is self-service. To borrow a book, use the self-issue terminal next to the Library entrance. You will need your University Card. Follow the instructions on the screen - and contact the Librarian if you have any problems. If the Librarian is not available use the signing out sheet next to the self-issue terminal. The Librarian will add the books to your record later.
You can borrow up to 30 books at a time, for 28 days. Books can also be borrowed for the whole vacation period
If you try to remove a book from the Library without issuing it you will set off the alarm. This will also trigger a cctv recording. Please contact the Librarian as soon as possible if this happens, unless it was caused by using the sign out sheet.
Note: You are responsible for books issued in your name, even if you have lent them to another student.
To return a book, use the self return option on the self issue terminal. Choose 'check in', pile the books on the scanner pad, check that they have correctly checked in, place the books in the book return box. If you have any problems with this then find me in the library office or email me.
Although there are no fines for overdue books please do renew books in a timely manner or return them if they no longer needed. You will be charged for any lost books.
