The AIT Library will endeavor to meet the needs of all our students with disabilities, ensuring that you have equal access to all our library facilities and resources. If you need additional support whilst in the library please make yourself known at the issue desk and a member of staff will help you.
Library Ireland Week will take place from Sunday 4th December to Saturday 10th December 2022! The theme for the week is ‘Libraries as Places of Sanctuary’ #LIW22 @LAIonline
Quiet Seating within the Library
In collaboration with the Disability Services, library has new furniture in two newly designated areas to support “Quiet Areas” for staff and students. These areas are located in the Nursing Library reading room (on the right of the main library) and down in the right corner at the back of the main 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.
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.
