SVUH Library & Information Services will continue to provide the following services until further advised:


  • The Library is staffed on a rostered basis with one person in the office at any time during normal opening hours of 9.30-5.30. Please bear with us during this period of reduced staffing.

  • All our Electronic resources remain accessible both onsite (in each hospital) and remotely (with an OpenAthens account) to all staff and students. The link to our E-resources is to be found on the PINK BLOCK on this page. Application forms for OpenAthens accounts are available on the BLUE BLOCK on this page

Welcome to St Vincent’s Healthcare Group Library website

We provide library and information services to the staff of St. Vincent’s Healthcare Group, as well as to students from University College Dublin on placement in any of the Group’s hospitals. There are two library sites – one based in St. Vincent’s University Hospital, and one located in St. Michael’s Hospital. We support the information needs and therefore the clinical practice, professional education and research activities, of all staff of St. Vincent's Healthcare Group.

Use this website to:

  • Search our catalogue of books - renew, reserve etc.
  • Access our electronic resources (e-journals and databases) from within the Hospitals and remotely.
  • Download forms - borrower registration, OpenAthens registration, article request.
  • View our opening hours, our publications, and much more.
  • Find out about upcoming library training, presentations and events.
