The IT Carlow Libraries in the Carlow, Wexford and Wicklow campuses are currently closed due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Borrowing and returning of, or access to, physical collections is unfortunately not possible when we are closed. However, items already borrowed will not incur fines during the period the library is closed.
Students and staff can search for ejournal articles via 'EDS: Online Article, Database Search' from the Library homepage. Simply type keywords, titles or authors into the search box pictured below and click "Search". Once you have done this you will be asked to log in with your IT Carlow network username and password. This will conduct a quick search of the Library's ejournal databases and other online resources.
When a search results list is displayed, it will by default list all results where full-text access is available. If required, the Source Types option can also be set to Academic Journals to only display results from high-quality academic journals:
