Library Catalogue

Description of Department/Service

Tallaght University Hospital Library is a health sciences library open to all Hospital and Psychiatric Unit staff, and Trinity College staff - and some groups of TCD undergraduates & postgraduates - based in the Hospital.


The Mission of the Library is to provide its diverse user communities with timely access to world-class information resources and a professional advisory service to support direct patient care; evidence-based practice; research, learning and teaching; and management-decision making.


The Library will be an inspiring and dynamic knowledge environment supporting the Hospital’s mission and values.


The Library embodies the Hospital values of respect for patient autonomy, respect for each other, caring, openness, partnership and teamwork, and fairness and equity. In addition, the Library is committed to librarian values of service, collaboration, innovation and access to information, allied with the medical/clinical values of patient-focus, privacy and confidentiality, and ethics.
