DkIT Library and Louth County Libraries have teamed up to provide their members with a comprehensive library service. The collaboration - 1 Card 6 Libraries - is the first such service in Ireland. Since its launch last autumn both libraries have seen their membership and footfall increase.
This is an innovative project enabling borrowers of Louth County Libraries to avail of the services of DkIT Library and vice versa. In order to use and borrow from the libraries you must indicate to the library of which you are a member that you want to avail of this service. Within a week you will be able to borrow from other Libraries using your Library Membership Card/ID.
The scheme offers Library members access to the following: Access to a large and varied collection of books, ebooks, articles, DVDs and CDs, borrowing rights, PC/WiFi access, study/reading spaces.
This collaboration has enabled the libraries to work together in other areas, including the Dundalk Book Festival. The project is potentially of interest to you if you would like to avail of the services which an academic library provides, or if you are a DkIT student and want to use your local public branch library.
For more details ask at your local lending Library as you will have to opt in to use the service.
