Finding Materials

The Library Catalogue or Search All should be your starting point to check if the book, journal or other material you need is available.

If you only want to search for journals search the A-Z of Journals. If you only want print journals there is a bound list at the Issue Desk giving the titles and the locations in the library.

Summon will cross-search selected databases for articles. As not all databases are listed you should search the Library Databases pages for individual databases or subject lists.

Copies of Ph.D. and Masters theses written by MIC students are held on the First Floor of the library. You can search for these from the Library Catalogue by selecting Theses under the Collections menu. A printed list is also held at the Issue Desks.

Some theses can be found online in MIRR

Print copies of The Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Examiner and Limerick Leader are held in the library for three months. Ask at Issue Desk.

Newspapers on microfilm are held in the Audio-Visual library on the First Floor. Newspapers are also available online and can be found through the A-Z of Databases page.

Newspapers and the National Folklore Collection are held in microfilm on the First Floor. Ask at the Issue Desk.

These are held on the First Floor and can be searched from the Library Catalogue and selecting Audio-visual material under the Collections menu.
