Norma Smurfit Library
Welcome to the Norma Smurfit Library at NCI
The Library and Information service of the National College of Ireland offers a wide network of access to information for users. The library specialises in the areas of Finance, Economics, Accounting, Human Resource Management, Employee Relations, Trade Union Studies, and Informatics.
Our Mission is to provide our students and users with the right information, in the right form, and at the time required; blending traditional Library services with online information sources; while holding onto our essential and unique ‘user centred’ focus.
The library has holdings in excess of 56,000 books and reports. We subscribe to over 255 paper periodical titles and over 64,400 online journal titles. The Library has 150 reading spaces for student use, a computer area with 39 p.c.s, two meeting/group study rooms and an assistive technology room. Library meeting rooms are available for local community groups to book and use.
Aside from services for registered students and staff the library also provides an ‘External Membership’ facility which allows non-students to join and access library resources. For more information on library services please visit the Library Services and Facilities page.
