The IMI campus is closed due to Covid-19. You can read the latest news and updates on broader IMI activities relating to COVID-19 here.

July 14, 2020:

The following points relate specifically to library services:

  • We are committed to supporting ongoing programmes and services in as best a capacity as possible although changing circumstances may dictate that some services are affected. The health and safety of staff and patrons must take priority.
  • Plans for the resumption of print book circulation and other services are in place for September but remain contingent on the national approach to Covid-19 and decisions regarding health and safety on the IMI campus.
  • Library staff will answer regular queries via email:
  • You can contact the library to arrange a one-to-one support clinic session via Microsoft Teams as an alternative to an in-person appointment
  • Access to the library's online resources, i.e. journals databases, e-books, RefWorks, remain unaffected by the closure
  • Quick link to e-books
  • Please do not come to the library or return books in person while the campus is closed due to COVID-19.
  • The due dates for all current borrowings have been extended. There is no expectation that borrowings need to be returned until we can resume regular circulation.
  • We are currently not able to provide any access to print books nor can we issue or post books during the closure.
  • Holds have been temporarily disabled. If you have an existing hold on a print book it cannot be fulfilled during the closure
  • If you are a programme participant and you have a specific query relating to your programme contact your programme co-ordinator.
  • If you have any general questions relating to the activities of IMI please email:
