From Searching to Researching

Successful Searching

  • LibrarySearch, a new way to explore and locate books, articles, DVDs and more at Maynooth University Library. It offers a powerful search of the library’s content, from print materials to multimedia, to e-books and journals through the use of a single search box which quickly returns results across a range of the library’s collection.
  • A-Z of Databases

This contains a list of all the Databases that Maynooth Library subscribes to. It includes subject specific databases, multi disciplinary databases, dissertation databases, newspaper databases, dictionaries and many other resources.

Find a journal by its title or browse journals available by subject.

Maynooth University Institutional Repository showcases the research output of Maynooth University and St. Patrick's College staff and postgraduate students. This open access ensures the widest possible dissemination and impact for our work in Maynooth and contributes to the growing body of research literature that is now freely available online.
