Throughout the Covid 19 situation, the Business Information Service, provided by the Central Library, has carried on. Like the businesses and educational institutions that we support, we have had to adapt our service.
The Business Information Service, based in the Central Library, has continued to support business and education throughout the pandemic. While we can’t be there in person to help with research we can help remotely.
We're working towards restoring the business computers but in the meantime we are delighted to be able offer Dublin City library card holders remote access to one of our most useful business databases: Vison-Net.
In recent years, many of us have had to adapt our way of working. Remote working is now commonplace for many employers and employees and in many cases, it has produced effective and positive results. However, with this new way of working comes many new challenges. We have compiled a number of websites and web resources that give handy tips and advice to those who are getting used to the remote workspace.
