Cork City Libraries joined the LIBRARIES IRELAND national public library system on 15 February 2017.
Libraries Ireland is a government-sponsored initiative providing ready access to the library stock of all public libraries in Ireland — when all systems have been successfully changed over in late March or April 2017.
Please bear with us while staff and yourselves adjust to availing of the expanding resources from the Libraries Ireland service.
When systems have been fully set up, we hope you enjoy full access to the nationwide collection of items from Libraries Ireland.
Note: Your Cork City library card can also be used in other Irish public libraries when all have joined Libraries Ireland by the end of March 2017. More news of this to follow soon!
We encourage you to visit the new catalogue to familiarise yourself with how it works. Just click on the image at the top of the page. It might be a good idea to bookmark the site for future reference.
When you have successfully logged in, click on Edit Account.
A pop-up window will appear where you can tick the box to opt-in for SMS and email. Click on submit.
Soon afterwards you will receive a confirmation text to let you know that you have agreed to receive SMS messages from the library. You can opt-out or change your mobile number at any time by editing your account.
Your membership will be activated immediately but you will have to go to your local library to verify your account and pick up a membership card. You will need to bring proof of your address with you.
We hope you enjoy using the new Libraries Ireland online catalogue. If you have any questions then please get in touch with us.
