As we start into Semester 2, we would ask students to ensure they are familiar with the Guidelines for Using Study Environments. We have a shared responsibility to maintain safety measures when using these spaces to protect student health & wellbeing.
Click & Collect, Click & Deliver, Scan & Send Services: We are unable to fulfill requests for materials from the RCSI Library, BH Collection during Level 5 restrictions. Requests for materials held in RCSI Library, York Street will be processed. Medicine Year 5 (SC2) students can avail of the Click & Delivery service to request materials from RCSI Library, York Street collections.
The safety and wellbeing of students and staff underpins library service plans for the 2020/21 academic year. For returning students you will notice changes both to how we deliver services and to the physical study environments as we implement the necessary physical distancing measures.
One of the big changes for the Library service this year is that there is no drop-in access to library spaces in York Street and Beaumont. Working closely with colleagues across the university, learning communities will have scheduled access to study spaces in the library and Ardilaun Block B (read more).

The Heritage Collections reading room, Mercer Building is currently closed until further notice.
The SCONUL and ALCID reciprocal library access schemes are suspended for 2020/21. We cannot provide letters for introduction, SCONUL access letters or ALCID cards to RCSI members. We are unable to host visitors from other institutions participating in these schemes.
