When you find the book you want you’ll see a shelf number for print books, this will help you find it in the library. For ebooks, simply click on the link to read it online or download it (you’ll need a library PIN to do this).
We have thousands of books, journal articles and reports in print and online but we don't have access to everything. So, if you find that we don’t hold an item that you need, you can use our Document Supply Service. This service provides access to books and journal articles which are held at other libraries in the Ireland and overseas.
Each book that GMIT libraries acquire is assigned a Dewey number that identifies its subject matter. This number can be found on the spine of the book. As Dewey is a numerical system the books are arranged on the shelves in numerical order. The following is the ten main classes of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system.
000 Computer science, information & general works
100 Philosophy & psychology
300 Social sciences
700 Arts & recreation
900 History & geography
The library has access to over 220,000 online books via a number of eBook collections to read and download for free. eBooks can be accessed from any device that has an Internet connection, so you don’t need to be in the Library to read them.
