Click & Collect services allow you to place online requests for print books held in RCSI Library York Street and Beaumont Hospital for collection.
The service is available to all students who are members of a Learning Community with scheduled access to either library space in York Street or Beaumont Hospital. This includes students assigned to learning communities for:
and RCSI staff and postgraduate research students scheduled for onsite attendance on the main campus and Beaumont campus.
All items which can currently be borrowed from the RCSI Library York Street and Beaumont Hospital collections can be requested via Click & Collect. Store and Heritage Collection items cannot be requested via these services.
Please check the RCSI Library catalogue to see if the books of interest are available in the library or online. Please note the book title and author as you will need this information to complete the submission form.
We aim to fulfil your request as soon as possible but delays may occur due to high demand, waiting for items to be returned from other users, the need to quarantine returned books. For the Click & Deliver service An Post Express Parcel delivery will be used to ensure items get to you as soon as possible.
When your requests are ready for collection the library team will send you an email indicating your book is now ready for collection. Due to University regulations you are only allowed to collect the book during your allocated Library time. Please check this LibGuide for your Learning Communities allocated Library Time.
The items will be stored in a bag with your student ID number listed on the outside of it. Please ensure you adhere to social distancing guidelines (wear your face mask, observe 2 metre distancing) when collection your items.
We appreciate the complexity of student schedules onsite this year. We aim to ensure your collection window falls on a day you are due to attend on site for teaching or study space use. If you fail to collect on that date, the items will be returned. If you are unable to attend site please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternative arrangements, we will try to accommodate changes as much as reasonably possible.
On the days you are scheduled for onsite access please use the book return bins available on site:
Returned books will be quarantined for 7 days.
