Q. I am a UCC student/staff member, can I visit other libraries in Ireland?
There are 2 co-operative schemes open to UCC staff and degree level postgraduate students. There is no membership fee for either.
The ALCID scheme allows you to visit other Irish university member libraries (no borrowing). To get an ALCID card fill out the application form below and submit it to the Library Services Desk, Boole Library.
If you wish to visit Trinity College Dublin, ALCID is the only option.
The SCONUL Access Scheme covers many Irish and UK universities. You may not have access to all member universities, depending on which type of user you are.
Apply to UCC Library for approval (SCONUL link below). When you receive the approval email, you should contact the library you want to visit about opening times and any conditions for that library.
TIP If you are visiting a library to consult specific material, contact the library in advance to make sure the material is available.
