Library

 

The Library of National University of Ireland, Galway, is named after James Hardiman, born in 1782, noted antiquarian and author of the standard history of Galway and other works and first Librarian of the College (1849-1855).

The Main Library building was completed in 1973. It is purpose built, but has undergone subsequent extensions, and now offers approximately 8,800m2 of space on three floors over basement.

The Medical Library is located in the Clinical Sciences Institute at University College Hospital and there is a separate Nursing Library in the Business Park at Dangan.
