Hotel Management: Books and eBooks

This is a guide to the library resources and services available at Shannon College of Hotel Management.

Borrowing books

The number of books that can be borrowed depends on the category of borrower:

Borrower privileges
Category No of Books No of Days No of
Undergraduate student 6 7 9
Undergraduate student registered with the DSS 7 14 9
Postgraduate student 10 84 3
Staff 20 84 5

If you want to borrow a book that is already on loan to someone else you can place a request for that item and you will receive an email when it is available for you.

If you receive an email asking you to return a book that has been requested by another reader, this changes the loan period and you must return it.  Fines will start to accrue for recalled items that are not returned within 3 days of the recall notice being issued.

Books in the Reference Collection and print journals cannot be removed from the Library and books in the High Use collection can only be borrowed for 24 hours and cannot be renewed.
