Rules and Regulations

In order to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for reading, learning and all other library activities, ATU Donegal Library requires all users to comply with the following rules and regulations:

All students have the right to peaceful, quiet, contemplative study so, no talking please in the library. This also includes the use of mobile phones; mobile phone use is also prohibited on the back stairwell as the noise can be very disruptive. Group study rooms can be booked online for group work.
