Finding print books in DCU Library

Print collections

The majority of the DCU Library collections relating to Sociology are located in Cregan library on DCU's St Patrick's campus in Drumcondra and O'Reilly Library on the Glasnevin Campus. Depending on your course of study, you are likely to find what you need in the Main Collection (2nd and 3rd floor in Cregan Library, 1st and 2nd floor in O'Reilly Library). Search Library Search by author, title or keyword to find a specific book or to browse our collections.

You'll need the shelf mark of a book and the library's floor plan for Cregan Library or O'Reilly Library to locate a print book on the shelf. Watch our 'Locating books on the shelf' video below for a short demonstration. Click here to find out more about borrowing, returning, reserving and renewing books.
