Some material held in Special Collections is recently published and not particularly valuable, why is this material for consultation only?

The Hibernica Collection is an Irish collection covering Irish history, politics and literature and its research value lies in the comprehensiveness of the collection rather than of individual items. As this material is only available for consultation there is a benefit to readers as it will always be available for use in the Reading Room. Special Collections has its own book budget, books are not bought from funds used to support reading lists. You can search for material held in Special Collections using the Library Catalogue.
If you feel a title held only by Special Collections is relevant to your course you should contact your Subject Librarian who may order a copy for Standard or Short Loan stock.
