Kilkenny WIT students get 24-hour access to online libraries

Waterford Institute of Technology has made a wide range of online resources, eBooks, journals, and help guides online to support their study and research.

“WIT Libraries are endeavouring to meet our communities’ information needs by delivering access to credible content from authoritative, scholarly sources,” Head of Library & Information Services, Terry O’Brien said.

“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.”

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
  • Library subject guides – a one-stop shop to academic subject resources, including everything from literature reviews to referencing and more, available at WIT LibGuides
  • Continued access to MultiSearch – our one-stop shop discovery tool of all our resources including databases, ejournals and more, available at MultiSearch

While the Luke Wadding (pictured) and College Street Library buildings are currently closed, WIT Libraries staff continue to work remotely to provide online support and resources to the institute’s staff and 9,000 students.

Earlier this week, WIT announced that as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic all semester two examinations scheduled for May 2020 are to be replaced by alternative assessment.

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 this short video if you need guidance.
