Welcome to Library Services

There are six libraries within the Institute. They are located at Aungier Street, Bolton Street, Cathal Brugha Street, Grangegorman, Kevin Street, and Rathmines Road.

Hours of opening vary between libraries and according to the time of year.  Please refer to the notices at each library for further details.  Also check library opening hours for regular opening times and for any temporary changes.  If you plan to visit the libraries in the evenings or on Saturdays, we advise you to phone beforehand to check if they are open.


DIT Library currently stocks more than 350,000 books and other items and subscribes to nearly 35,000 journal titles.  The entire holdings of the DIT libraries, their locations and current status are displayed on the Library Catalogue.  This can be accessed in each library and via the Internet at  Registered users may borrow from any of the libraries.  Books and journal articles not in the DIT Library can be requested via the inter-library loan service.


The DIT libraries provide study spaces, networked PCs, textbooks and other course materials, reference works and journals to support the programmes offered by DIT and to facilitate research.  Information is available in many formats besides books e.g. videos, DVDs, maps and music.  Many electronic resources can be accessed from any networked PC.  Photocopiers and printers are also available.


Your Library Services are a valuable resource during your time with DIT.  Feel free to use any of the libraries and remember that the staff there are always willing to help you find the information you need.  They can be contacted in person, by phone and by e-mail.
