Welcome Freshers!

Entrance to the Berkeley LibraryToday sees the start of Freshers’ Week for new undergraduates. If you are new to College, be it undergraduate, postgraduate or staff, we’d like to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to Trinity College Library Dublin.

The vast majority of Freshers will be brought during the course of the week to one of our libraries by student mentors – so for current users, there will be a little more noise and disruption than usual.

Leaflets and posters are up around the Library and College promoting our Library HITS (Helpful Information for Trinity Students/Staff) programme – a description and timetable in an accessible format is available online. If you have questions about Library HITS or anything to do with the Library, just ask us – we’re here to help!

Our new Librarian, Ms Helen Shenton, joined us over summer and she will send a more formal welcome to all members of the College community once term begins next week.
