Hotel Management: Introduction

A guide to information sources relevant to hospitality management and catering studies
All registered students and staff of Shannon College are automatic members of the library. The library supports the entire College community in its learning, teaching and research. We hope that the information provided here enhances your library visit.

Using the Libary catalogue

 

  • Search the catalogue to find all electronic and print materials.  To search the physical holdings in Shannon and all electronic resources, we have our own Shannon College view of the NUI Galway Library catalogue
  • Look at the icons to the left of titles to determine what types of sources they are. For books, click on the title of an item to see the number of copies, whether they are in the library or out on loan, and the shelf number you need to locate the item.
  • You can check your borrower record at any time by logging onto your library account. Watch this short video to learn how

  • All books in the Shannon College lending collection can be borrowed for one week

  • Loans will automatically renew up to 9 times if not required by another reader and if you have no recalled loans or fines on your account

  • Because items on loan are automatically renewed and therefore are likely to be out of the collection for extended periods, you need to learn how to place a hold on books so that items on loan are recalled when you need them. Watch this short video to learn how

  • If a book you have on loan is recalled, this changes the date due and you must return it within 3 days, otherwise fines will accrue on all your loans

  • High Use books are held behind the issue desk and can be borrowed for up to 3 hours for use in the Library.  These are now easily identifiable on the catalogue and cannot be reserved. 

  • Fines accrue on overdue loans and cannot be waived except in exceptional circumstances.  Fines on your account may prevent you from borrowing.  You can now settle any fines through your Print Credit Account.
