All WIT students and staff have access to a wide range of resources, eBooks, journals, and help guides online to support their study and research
WIT Libraries are committed to maintaining critical services and providing resources virtually for its community of users.
While the Luke Wadding and College Street Library buildings are currently closed, WIT Libraries staff continue to work remotely to provide online support and resources to staff and students.
Library access to credible sources
Head of Library & Information Services, Terry O’Brien “WIT Libraries are endeavouring to meet our communities' information needs by delivering access to credible content from authoritative, scholarly sources.”
To access online resources off-campus, staff and students simply need their normal network username and password (same as Moodle and same as when you are logging on to the network on campus). View see this short video if you need guidance.
“Many of our services and huge amounts of resources are available to students from off-campus. All online services can be accessed 24/7 via the library website at www.wit.ie/library,” he explains.
Search, eBooks, journals, and how-to guides available
This includes -
- Unlimited access to over 200,000 eBooks, available at WIT eBooks
- Access to millions of articles and journals through our extensive suite of online databases, available at WIT databases

O’Brien adds that students need not worry about borrowed books. “There are no overdues or renewals required, we can sort all this out in due course.”
