IBSD Library Catalogue

We added some books to our library over the summer months. Poetry books, monologues, LAMDA anthologies and quite a few theory books/ teaching guides.

We’ve updated our library catalogue and this is now browseable online, through a rather remarkable website called ISSUU. Here’s the link:

When you click on this link, you’ll be brought to the catalogue. You can scroll through it, enlarge it and search it using the icons on the screen.

If you want a copy, please contact us and we’ll email you one.

You are more than welcome to visit us and browse the books in person. Just phone us on 01-2164270 to arrange a time.

If we get time, we’re hoping to review some of our new accessions soon.
