Secondary School Students

Information Skills programme

The Library offers an Information Skills programme for Secondary School class groups. This programme aims to help students become more independent learners and to be better prepared for third level education. The programme will be designed in consultation with class teachers so as to provide a tailored experience.

Students will develop their information skills by learning:

  • what kind of information is needed
  • where to find information
  • how to use information in an ethical way, both in their academic work and their personal lives

Visiting and studying in the Library

The Library is open to adult students of other colleges, including secondary schools. This means that, unless you are visiting with your teacher for an Information Skills class, you must be over 18 years of age to visit, study in or use any Library services.

If you are visiting the Library you may be asked for ID and proof of age. Those under 16 may not use the Library unless accompanied by a supervising adult. A peer is not considered to be a supervising adult.

Access is during off-peak and quiet times. In general we suggest evenings, Friday afternoons, Saturdays, and any time during the summer. Access is not available to members of the public during exam times in January and May. These dates are available on our opening hours calendar.

On entering the Library please sign in at the Library Information Desk. Please take some time also to become familiar with the Library’s regulations. Adults visiting the Library can use PCs, Wi-Fi and access some of our e-resources. Further information is available at the Library Information Desk.
