To limit movement on campus we are currently operating a delivery service rather than a collection service.
This service allows registered staff and students of GMIT to place online requests for print books and other library items.
How to place a hold on an item and collect it later:
Books will be held for 3 days. Uncollected books will be returned to their locations within the Library after this period.
Normal borrowing limits will apply. Books must be returned once loan limits and loan periods have been reached. Holds cannot be fulfilled if there are overdue items on your account.
Only loanable books and other library items such as DVD’s are available for borrowing. Non-loanable items such as theses, reference material, maps, etc. must be consulted in the library. You must book a seat in the library to consult non-loanable material.
Items which are located on Desk Reserve cannot be requested but you can use the Scan & Deliver service to request a chapter from High Demand items.
Remember to check the number of loans already listed on your library account. If you have maximised your loan limit you will need to return some items before collecting other items.
All registered GMIT students and staff (with a current G number) can avail of this free service.
You can only collect requests in your name and you must have your GMIT ID card to collect requests.
Every effort will be made to fulfil your request as soon as possible but delays may occur due to high demand and the necessity to quarantine returned books.
We will send you an email when your book is ready for collection. This email will detail the 3 day period in which you can visit your campus library to collect your item(s).
During the Covid-19 pandemic library material should be returned to the 'Book Return' box located outside each campus library.
Material is removed from this box daily and the books removed from users' accounts and placed in quarantine.
