When There are Four in the Relationship...

The Irish Times has some interesting articles in its Health Supplement today on the role of Grandparents in the development and 'parenting' of their grandchildren.
Of interest to all, but perhaps most relevant to those currently on the MA in Child, Family and Community Studies.
There is input from Professor Virpi Timonen of the school of social work and social policy at Trinity College Dublin, who co-edited Contemporary Grandparenting: Changing Family Relationships in Global Contexts. A copy of this book is being held behind the desk in the library for those who wish to consult it.
We have also ordered an e-book version of this book so that it will be available online to users. We will let you know when it is available.

Welcome to the Library!

We would just like to say a big welcome to all the first years in Grangegorman and also welcome back to all the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years.
We hope you will get the most out of the library.
We now have 2 group study rooms that can be booked online or at that issue desk.
We also have a separate computer room in the library.

Another addition is our self issue machine which allows you to check out and return books without queuing at the desk. Please ask any member of staff for help using it if you need to.

Along with all these great new services, we have our amazing Art and Design, and Social Science collections, audio visual materials, dissertations, and journals.

And don't forget all our online resources- from Databases, to E-journals, to E-books, to access to your library account.

We love our new library and we hope that you will too!
