Q. Do I need to make an appointment to use Special Collections?



You don't have to make an appointment but, as a lot of our collections are held in storage, these need to be requested in advance.

  • Items in the small reference collection in the Reading Room  - no advance notice needed.
  • The microform collection - no notice needed.
  • Early printed books collection -  half a day’s notice.
  • Manuscript material - 1 day’s notice.
  • Any other material - half a day's notice.

To request material, email specialcollections@ucc.ie with: author, title, call number of the item and when you need it.
