The James Hardiman Library (Irish: Leabharlann Shéamais Uí Argadáin) is the main library at NUI Galway in Ireland. It is situated on the main campus, beside the Arts/Science Concourse, the Arts Millennium Building and Aras na Gaelige. It is named after James Hardiman who was the first Librarian in the university. The library spans four floors and houses 424,843 books and 1,645 study spaces.[1] In October 2009 work began on an extending the library.
