RCSI Library, No. 26 York Street – Sneak Preview for Librarians

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland’s state of the art new academic and education building will open in autumn 2017. The College has invested approximately €80 million in the development of this modern, practical and sophisticated facility which, once completed, will be used to educate future healthcare leaders. The 120,000 square foot development, spanning 10 floors, will comprise a library; a world-class surgical and clinical training suite; a 540 seat auditorium; a sports hall and fitness suite, and has been designed to be energy efficient and environmentally responsible.
