Quiet Seating designated within the Library


In collaboration with the Disability Services, the library has acquired some new furniture.  These chairs are placed in two newly designated areas to support “Quiet Areas” for staff and students.  One of the areas is located in the Nursing Library reading room and the second area is at the back of the library.

These areas are designed to be a place of respite and calm, to ease sensory overload by reducing external noise for anyone using them.  These chairs feel like you really are in a cocoon and are provided to help anyone who may be experiencing stress or anxiety or for students who want to go and just have a quiet meditative space.

Disability Awareness

International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Today's Exhibition celebrates people with Down Syndrome

New Exhibition celebrates people with Down Syndrome

TUS Library is delighted to bring you James Crombie’s 321 Exhibition, currently on display in the fountain area of the canteen on the Midlands campus.

We invite you to join us TODAY Thursday 1st December @ 12.30pm to the launch by Vice President for Student Education and Experience, Frances O’Connell with a short talk from James on his work and this exhibition in particular.
 The 321 exhibition was developed to raise awareness of Down Syndrome, it comprises 48 portraits of people with Down Syndrome of every age, all members of the Offaly Down Syndrome Association. It has toured the Midlands and will be touring the country once it leaves our campus at the end of the week.
The exhibition is a powerful tool to raise awareness of Down Syndrome and James has brilliantly captured each personality in his portraits.
